Wünsche

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Persian (Farsi)

Ich wollt, ich wär ein morgenklarer See
und du, die Sonne, die sich darin spiegelt.

Ich wollt, ich wär ein Quell im Wiesengrunde
und du die Blume, die sich darin anlacht.

Ich wollt, ich wär ein grüner Dorn am Busche
und du die Rose, die ihn rot umschimmert.

Ich wollt, ich wär ein kleines Korn im Sande
und du der Vogel, der es schnell auf pickt!


Translation(s): CAT POL
