Vision der Wirklichkeit

Language: German (Deutsch)

Heute ist diese Vision der Wirklichkeit
wieder in Nichts versunken,
ferne sind mir die Dinge,
ferner noch ihre Stimmen,
und ich lausche, ganz beseeltes Ohr,
wieder auf die Melodien,
die in mir sind,
und mein beschwingtes Auge
träumt wieder seine Bilder,
die schöner sind
als alle Wirklichkeit!
