Welch ein Schweigen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Welch ein Schweigen, welch ein Frieden
in dem stillen Alpentale.
Laute Welt ruht abgeschieden.
Silbern schwankt des Mondes Schale.

Von den Wiesen strömt ein Düften.
Aus den Wäldern lugt das Dunkel.
Brausend aus geheimen Klüften
bricht der Bäche fahl Gefunkel.

Überm Saum der letzten Bäume
weiße Wände stehn und steigen
in die blauen Sternenräume.
Welch ein Frieden, welch ein Schweigen!
