Aus der Ferne schallen Gesänge

Language: German (Deutsch)

Aus der Ferne schallen Gesänge,
   Froh von zitternder Luft gewiegt;
Müsset verwehen, liebliche Klänge,
   Luftig und leicht, wie die Jugend verfliegt.

Kränze, im frischen Frühling gewunden,
   Welken, ehe der Mai verblüht,
Ach! und ehe der Lenz [verschwunden]1,
   Schleichet die Sorge zum jungen Gemüth.

Ziehet vorüber, [fröhliche]2 Lieder,
   Macht mir das [Herz]3 nicht enge, nicht bang,
Alter Zeiten gemahnt ihr mich wieder,
   [Leise lasset verhallen den Klang]4!
