Jünglingswonne

Language: German (Deutsch)

So lang' im deutschen Eichenthale,
Natur! dein hehrer Schauer webt,
Und, bei des Mondes Geisterstrale,
Der Adler Wodans mich umschwebt;

So lang' in der Erwählten Blicken
Mir tausend Himmel offen stehn,
Und, mit [vergötterndem]1 Entzücken,
[Wir Arm in Arm durchs Leben gehn]2;

So lang', in wackrer Brüder Kreise,
Der Bundeskelch zur Weihe klingt,
Und jeder, nach der Ahnherrn Weise,
In Tells und Hermanns Jubel singt:

Will ich den Gram den Winden geben,
Selbst Augenblicken Kränze weihn,
Und noch, wo Todesengel schweben,
Den Pfad mit Rosen mir bestreun!
