Tausend Tannenwipfel droh’n

Language: German (Deutsch)

Tausend Tannenwipfel [droh’n]1
Brausend hin und wider,
Trutz’ger Nachtwald tost und stürmt
Seine Urweltslieder.

Trübe bin ich durch die Nacht
Tief vom Tal geklommen,
Müdes Schreiten hat mir sacht
Last um Last genommen.

Toteneinsam lausche ich
In der finstren Runde,
Und die Seele stillet sich
Bis zum tiefsten Grunde.
