Wie sich Schatten dehnen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie sich Schatten dehnen
Vom Gebirg zum See,
Fühlt mein Herz ein Sehnen
Und ein süßes Weh.

Wie die Möwen fliegen
[Fluter]1 uferwärts,
Möcht' ich nun mich schmiegen
An ein treues Herz.

Froh im Morgenschimmer
Zieht der Wand'rer aus,
Aber abends immer
Möcht' er sein zu Haus.
