Nicht lange durstest du noch

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nicht lange durstest du noch,
  verbranntes Herz!
Verheissung ist in der Luft,
aus unbekannten Mündern bläst mich's an
  - die grosse Kühle kommt ...
Meine Sonne stand heiss über mir im Mittage:
seid mir gegrüsst, dass ihr kommt
  ihr plötzlichen Winde
ihr kühlen Geister des Nachmittags!
Die Luft geht fremd und rein.
Schielt nicht mit schiefem
die Nacht mich an? ...
Bleib stark, mein tapfres Herz!
Frag nicht: warum? -
