Glück

Language: German (Deutsch)

Solang du nach dem Glücke jagst,
Bist du nicht reif zum glücklich sein
Und währe alles Liebste dein.

[Solang]1 du nach Verlorenem klagst
Und Ziele hast und rastlos bist,
Weißt du noch nicht, was Friede ist.

Erst wenn du jedem Wunsch entsagst,
Nicht [Ziel]2 mehr, noch Begehren kennst,
Das Glück nicht mehr mit Namen nennst,

Dann reicht dir des Geschehens Flut
Nicht mehr ans Herz, 
Und deine Seele ruht.
