Es hält der Ost, der eitle

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Persian (Farsi)

Es hält der Ost, der eitle, sich,
Für sämmtlicher Geschöpfe Geist;
Doch höre deines Haars Arom,
Das ihn mit Fug zurechte weis't:

"Ich bin die Seele der Natur,
Da ohne mich die Welt zerfällt,
Und ihren öden Trümmerhauf
Des Chaos alte Nacht umkreis't."
