Der Mensch vergißt die Sorgen aus dem...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Mensch vergißt die Sorgen aus dem Geiste,
Der Frühling aber blüht, und prächtig ist das meiste,
Das grüne Feld ist herrlich ausgebreitet,
Da glänzend schön der Bach hinuntergleitet.
Die Berge stehn bedecket mit den Bäumen,
Und herrlich ist die Luft in offnen Räumen,
Das weite Tal ist in der Welt gedehnet
Und Turm und Haus an Hügeln angelehnet.

Note: the original poem is signed: "Mit Untertänigkeit Scardanelli". [Note added by Sharon Krebs, August 6, 2008]. In his madness Hölderlin seemed convinced sometimes that his name was Scardanelli. [Note added by Emily Ezust, August 6, 2008]
