Um der fallenden Ruder Spitzen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Um der fallenden Ruder Spitzen
Zittert und leuchtet ein schimmernder Glanz,
Flieht bei jedem Schlage mit Blitzen
Hin von Wellen zu Wellen im Tanz.

Mir im Busen von Liebeswonnen
Zittert und leuchtet das Herz wie die Flut,
Jubelt hinauf zu den Sternen und Sonnen,
Bebt zu vergeh'n in der wogenden Glut.

Schon auf dem Felsen durchs Grün der Platane
Seh' ich das säulengetragene Dach,
Und das flimmernde Licht am Altane
Kündet mir, daß die Geliebte noch wach.

Fliege, mein Kahn! und birg uns verschwiegen,
Birg uns, selige Nacht des August!
Süß wohl ist's, auf den Wellen sich wiegen,
Aber süßer an ihrer Brust.
