Die trunkene Tänzerin

Language: German (Deutsch)

Sieh, an letzten Himmels Saum
schwebt die Blume voller Süße
und die Schwingen meiner Füße
kosen wolkenzarten Traum.

Trinke meine Gluten aus,
führ den Taumelkelch zum Munde,
und du tanzt mit mir zur Stunde
aus dem lebenshellen Haus.

Singt der Sterne Silberchor
überm trunknen Mondesnachen,
gleiten wir mit leisem Lachen
in des Schlafes dunk'les Tor.
