Der Herbstabend

Language: German (Deutsch)

Abendglocken-Halle zittern
[Dumpf durch]1 Moorgedüfte hin;
Hinter jenes Kirchhofs Gittern
Blaßt des Dämmerlichts Karmin.

Aus umstürmten Lindenzweigen
Rieselt welkes Laub herab,
Und gebleichte Gräser beugen
Sich auf ihr bestimmtes Grab.

Freundin! wankt, im Abendwinde,
Bald auch Gras auf meiner Gruft,
Schwärmt das Laub um ihre Linde
Ruhelos in feuchter Luft,

[Wenn]2 schon meine Rasenstelle
Nur dein welker Kranz noch ziert,
Und auf Lethes leiser Welle
Sich mein Nebelbild verliert:

Lausche dann! Im Blätterschauer
Wird es dir vernehmlich wehn:
Jenseits schwindet jede Trauer;
Treue wird sich wiedersehn!
