Ich komme heim aus dem Sonnenland!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich komme heim aus [dem]1 Sonnenland!
Ich bin den ganzen blühenden Tag
In [lauter]2 Schönheit gegangen!
[Nun]3 fliegts mir um Stirn und Wangen,
[Noch]1 wie ein verklärter seliger Schein...
Sieh' mir nicht so in die Augen hinein,
Sonst nimmt er dich auch gefangen;
Dann kommen wir nicht von einander los,
Und schauen uns an, so sehnsuchtsgroß,
[Finden]4 aus lachendem [Märchenglück]5
Nie mehr den Weg [in das]6 Leben zurück.
