Glockenblumen, was läutet ihr?

Language: German (Deutsch)

Glockenblumen, was läutet ihr?
Wer ist im Walde gestorben?
Oder wißt ihr, daß heimlich hier
Liebe um Liebe geworben?

Wißt ihr's, wohin auf dem einsamen Gang
Schritt und Gedanken mir streben?
Glocken, ich höre nicht euren Klang,
Seh' euch nur schwingen und schweben.

Lauschenden Blättern denn läutet es aus,
Klinget wie Harfen und Psalmen,
Meldet's im Grünen von Haus zu Haus
Bäumen und Büschen und Halmen.

Liebe macht selig wie nichts in der Welt,
Lachen könnt' ich und weinen,
Glücklichste ich unterm Himmelszelt,
Blumen, -- ich liebe Einen!
