Über mir in wolkigen Lüften

Language: German (Deutsch)

Über mir in wolkigen Lüften
[Jubeln]1 Lerchen traumverloren.
Tief im Haidekraute lieg’ ich,
Fühle mich so erdgeboren.

Ganz, als ob ich aus der Scholle
Wildentwachsen wär’, wie Bäume,
Leicht vom Haidewind geschaukelt,
Erde halb -- und halb auch Träume.

Ganz, als ob ich aus der Scholle
Aufgeflogen wär' mit Schwingen,
Hoch im Sommerwind aufsteigend,
Erde halb -- und halb doch Klingen.
