Gipfelndes Glück

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein Duft weht überall, 
ein Rieseln, Sang und Schall, 
und tief in Sonnenschein 
hüllt sich der Morgen ein,
in goldenen Strahlenwall.

Ein ferner Glockenton
schwebt durch das All davon,
und sucht den Schwesterklang
den tiefen Wald entlang
in säul'ger Buchenkron'.

Und in den Linden summt
ein Bienenschwarm und brummt,
bis hoch die Sonne steigt
und Wald und Wiese schweigt,
in höchster Lust verstummt.
