Auf eine kranke Rose

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ist das in dir der Mensch oder der Christ,
Daß du dich mühtest und nun fröhlich bist,
Daß jener Rosenstock, der sterbend stand,
Den deine Hand mit Werg und Bast umwand,
Nun dennoch Knospen treibt:
Rötliche, kleine ärmliche Knospenwülste.
Sonne, scheine, und Regen, komm herab!
Es ist geschehen.
Ihr sollt mein totes Sträuchlein leben sehen.
