Voll Blüten steht der Pfirsichbaum

Language: German (Deutsch)

Voll Blüten steht der Pfirsichbaum,
Nicht jede wird zur Frucht,
Sie schimmern hell wie Rosenschaum
Durch Blau und [Wolkenfrucht]1.

Wie Blüten geht Gedanken auf,
Hundert an jedem Tag -
Laß blühen! laß dem Ding den Lauf!
Frag nicht nach dem Ertrag!

Es muß auch Spiel und Unschuld sein
Und Blütenüberfluß,
Sonst wär die Welt uns viel zu klein
Und Leben kein Genuß.
