Ein wunderbares Rätselreich ‑‑ die...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein wunderbares Rätselreich -- die Nacht!
Im weiten Himmelsgrunde
Sind funkelnde Sterne erwacht.
Und rings auf der finsteren Erde,
In stummer Ruh,
Schlossen tausend Soldaten
Müde Lider zu.
Noch flackert das Feuer der Wacht.
Ein Einsamer grüsst Dich,
Schweigende Nacht!
