Aus schweren Träumen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Aus schweren Träumen
Fuhr ich oft auf und sah durch Tannenwipfel
Den Mond ziehn [übern stillen]1 Grund und sang
Vor Bangigkeit und schlummert wieder ein. -

Ja, Menschenstimme, hell aus frommer Brust!
Du bist doch die gewaltigste, und triffst
Den rechten Grundton, der verworren anklingt
In all den tausend Stimmen der Natur!
