Der Frühling lockt!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Frühling lockt! Die ersten Veilchen sprießen,
Da leidets mich nicht in der engen Kammer.
Hinaus, hinaus, hinaus, [die Seele frei zu baden]1
Von all der Winterqual, von all dem Lebensjammer.

Und blüht dem Menschen auch kein Lebensfrühling,
An jedem Lenz berauscht er seinen Sinn,
Fühlt neue Kraft, des Lebens Last zu tragen!
So nimm denn, Holder, all' mein Denken hin.
