Im Januar

Language: German (Deutsch)

Zu den winterkahlen Zweigen
feierlich in leichtem Reigen
Stern um Sterne niedersteigen
aus dem sammetschwarzen Schweigen
dieser wundersamen Nacht.
 
Was ist Nähe - - was ist Ferne?
Und ich pflücke mir der Sterne
Silberfrüchte. Und ich lerne:
alles gibt Natur dir gerne,
wenn du selber gern dich gibst.
