Der Verlassene

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nacht ist um mich her, im Mondenscheine
Feiert rings die blühende Natur.
Schwarz bedecket ruht die junge Flur,
Philomelens Lied erstarb im Haine.

Alles ruht so süß! Ich Armer nur
Stehe traurig auf der Flur und weine,
Suche überall nur sie, die eine,
Ach, und finde nirgends ihre Spur.

Wie die Blumen hier nach neuer Sonne
An den goldnen Strahlen zu erwarmen
Mit gesenktem Haupt sich innig sehnen,
So erträum ich mir in meinen Tränen
Jene neidenswerte Himmelswonne,
Die Verlorne wieder zu umarmen.
