Abendstille öffnet Thüren

Language: German (Deutsch)

   Abendstille öffnet Thüren,
Lieb' der Liebe zuzuführen,
[Nimmer, nimmer,]1
Lockt der Schimmer
Mich den Armen,
Zu dem warmen
Hauche ewig ferner Lust,
[Stillt das Pochen meiner]2 Brust.
Sterne ziehen,
Lieder fliehen,
Und ich weine
[Hier]3 alleine,
[Bis des Thaues stille Thränen
Mit mir fühlen tiefes Sehnen,]4
Kalte Winde
Durch die Linde
Sausend lauschen,
Seufzer tauschen!
Wunderlieb' und süße Träume,
Ohne euch wär' ich alleine!
Mir entfliehen,
Zu dir ziehen
Die Gedanken,
Wie die Ranken
Deine Hütte fest umziehen,
Grüner Hoffnung nie erblühen,
Könnt' ich steigen,
Mit den Zweigen,
Zu der Liebe,
Wie die Diebe! --
