Guter Rat

Language: German (Deutsch)

Springer, der in luft'gem Schreiten
Über die gemeine Welt,
Kokettieret mit den Leuten,
Sicherlich vom Seile fällt.

Schiffer, der nach jedem Winde
Blas er witzig oder dumm,
Seine Segel stellt geschwinde,
Kommt im Wasser schmählich um.

Weisen Sterne doch die Richtung,
Hörst du nachts doch fernen Klang,
Dorthin liegt das Land der Dichtung,
Fahre zu und frag nicht lang.
