Acherontisches Frösteln

Language: German (Deutsch)

Schon nascht der Staar die rote Vogelbeere,
Zum Erntekranze juchheiten die Geigen,
Und warte nur, bald nimmt der Herbst die Scheere
Und schneidet sich die Blätter von den Zweigen,
Dann ängstet in den Wäldern eine Leere,
Durch kahle Äste wird ein Fluß sich zeigen,
Der schläfrig an mein Ufer schickt die Fähre,
Die mich hinüberholt ins große Schweigen.

Submitted by Ferdinando Albeggiani
