Entschlafen

Language: German (Deutsch)

All die Glöckchen blühen wieder,
Neu entknospen Baum und Strauch;
Mit den Veilchen, mit dem Flieder
Sprießt hervor das Grämen auch.

Denken muß ich goldner Tage,
Da der Frühling zu uns zog,
Und dein Geist mit leiser Klage
Aus der welken Hülle flog.

Ach! die milden Lüfte hauchen
Sehnsuchtsvoll den Namen dein;
In den Äther möcht ich tauchen
Und mit dir vereinigt sein!

Singet, Vöglein, von den Zweigen,
Singt ein Lied mir tröstend zu;
Alle Schmerzen sollen schweigen,
Denn er schläft in süßer Ruh!
