Im Spätherbst

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Nebel fliehn und wogen
Und halten rings umzogen
Des Himmels blauen Plan.
Es stirbt die Fröhlichkeit,
Verstummt sind Berg und Wälder,
Umschattet Aun und Felder
Von feuchter Dunkelheit.

So dunkelten die Tage
In Kummer, Furcht und Plage
Dein ganzes Leben hin.
Als dir das Morgenrot
Die fernen Höh'n umkränzte,
Das Glück zuerst dir glänzte,
Da kam zu dir der Tod.
