Sterne überall

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Sterne sah ich am Himmel stehn,
Doch als ich heut nach dem Wald gegangen,
Da sah ich sie dort auf den Wiesen blühn,
Die nachts so glänzend am Himmel gehangen.

Nur zwei, die blieben am selben Ort,
Die strahlen im lieben Gesichtchen noch immer,
Die schauen noch immer mich an so treu,
Die leuchten noch immer mit kindlichem Schimmer.

Confirmed with Weißdorn: Gedichte von Carl Hepp, Stuttgart: Paul Neff, 1890, page 195.
