Das Epheublättchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wo fliehst du, armes Blättchen, hin,
Von deinem Stamme geschieden?
Wo ist der Ort? O sage mir an,
Wo weilst du, mein Blättchen, hienieden?

Ich weiß es nicht, seit grausam der Sturm
Zernichtet Eichstamm und Zweige,
Irr' ich vom feindlichen Nordwind gejagt
Durch Tal und Höh'n und schweige.

Wo alles Irdische wallet hin,
Das Blättlein der lieblichen Rose,
So wie des Lorbeers, da wartet auch mein
Ein Plätzchen im kühlichen Schoße.
