Traumlicht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein Licht im Traum 
Hat mich besucht, 
Es nahte kaum, 
[Und nahm]1 die Flucht.

Der Blick ist tief
Hier eingesenkt,
Den, als ich schlief,
Du mir geschenkt.

Hell dämmert mild 
Am Tage wach,
O Nachtgebild,
Dein Glanz mir nach.

Komm oft, O Stern,
In meiner Ruh!
Dir schließ' ich gern
Die Augen zu.
