Wie eine Lerch' in blauer Luft

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie eine Lerch' in blauer Luft,
wie eine Bien' im Blüthenduft,
wie's Fischlein in der klaren Fluth,
wie's Wölkchen auf der Erde ruht,
so klingt's in mir, so summt's in mir, 
so wogt's mit mir, so eilt's in mir,
so klingt's, so summt's, so wogt's, so eilt's zu dir!
und nur im Menschen der Verstand
hält mich noch fest mit kalter Hand.
