Schifferlied der Wasserfee

Language: German (Deutsch)

Auf Wogen gezogen,
von Klängen,
durch Strahlen gelenkt:
die Wellen,
die hellen
Gewölke, von Morgenröte getränkt;
die Töne,
die Schwäne,
die saüselnden Lüfte,
die blumigen Düfte,
sich alles zum Grusse entgegen mir drängt.
Ohn' Sorgen
nur weiter,
Wie heiter
der Morgen!
Fliess Bächlein,
fahr Schifflein
Ohn Sorgen nur weiter,
begegnet doch alles wie Schicksal verhängt.
