Die braune Haide starrt mich an
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Die braune Haide starrt mich an,
   Am Himmel bangt die Nacht -
Ach! daß ich nicht vergessen kann,
   Hat mich in Leid gebracht.

Komm, wilder Sturm, zerreiße du,
   Der Wolken schwarzen Flor
Und sing mein wildes Herz in Ruh
   Mit deinem tollsten Chor!
