Ich wandre heim durchs hohe Feld

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich wandre heim durchs hohe Feld,
Die Wolken ziehn.
In tiefer Ruhe liegt die Welt -- --
Du bist dahin!

Das Abendläuten ist verhallt
Im Lindengrün,
Der letzte Vogel singt im Wald -- --
Du bist dahin!

Da fühl' ich's leise, wie ich krank
Vor Sehnen bin,
Der Vogel schwieg, die Sonne sank -- --
Du bist dahin!
