Sehnsucht, wie lang dehnst du den Tag

Language: German (Deutsch)

Sehnsucht, wie [lang]1 dehnst du den Tag,
Wie öd' ist mir auf grüner Erden!
Stumm pocht das Herz mir, Schlag um Schlag,
Will es denn nimmer Abend werden?

Und wird es Abend -- wähnst du dann,
Daß dir der Abend Frieden brächte?
O, nur noch tiefer webt mein Bann! --
Sehnsucht, wie lang dehnst du die Nächte?
