Vorfrühling

Language: German (Deutsch)

Vorfrühling seufzt in weiter Nacht,
daß mir das Herze brechen will;
die Lande ruhn so menschenstill,
nur ich bin aufgewacht.

Oh horch, nun bricht des Eises Wall
auf allen Strömen, allen Seen;
mir ist, ich müßte mit vergehn
und, Woge, wieder auferstehn
zu neuem Klippenfall.

Die Lande ruhn so menschenstill;
nur hier und dort ist wer erwacht,
und seine Seele weint und lacht,
wie es der Tauwind will.
