Wenn im braunen Hafen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wenn im braunen Hafen
Alle Schiffe schlafen,
Wach' ich auf zu dir.
Stille in der Runde,
Heilig diese Stunde,
Denn sie bringt dich, atemhaltend, mir.
Stehst in Mondenhelle
Wartend an der Schwelle,
Und ich fühle dich;
Komm, daß ich dich halte,
Deine Seele walte
Über meinen Träumen [mütterlich]1.
