Geweihter Platz

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wenn zu den Reihender Nymphen versammelt,
in heiliger Mondnacht sich die Grazien
heimlich herab vom Olympus gesellen.
Hier belauscht sie der Dichter 
und hört die schönen Gesänge,
sieht verschwiegener Tänze geheimnisvolle Bewegung.
Was der Himmel nur herrliches hat,
Was glücklich die Erde Reizendes immer gebar,
Das erscheint dem wachenden Träumer.
Alles erzählt er den Musen
und daß die Götter nicht zürnen,
lehren die Musen ihn gleich bescheiden Geheimnisse sprechen.
