Der Sänger

Language: German (Deutsch)

Noch singt den Widerhallen
Der Knabe sein Gefühl;
Die Elfe hat Gefallen
Am jugendlichen Spiel.

Es glänzen seine Lieder
Wie Blumen rings um ihn;
Sie gehn mit ihm wie Brüder
Durch stille Haine hin.

Er kommt zum Völkerfeste,
Er singt im Königssaal,
Ihm staunen alle Gäste,
Sein Lied verklärt das Mahl;

Der Frauen Schönste krönen
Mit lichten Blumen ihn;
Er senkt das Aug in Tränen,
Und seine Wangen glühn.
