Himmel grau und wochentäglich!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Himmel grau und wochentäglich!
Auch die Stadt ist noch dieselbe!
Und noch immer blöd und kläglich
Spiegelt sie sich in der Elbe.

Lange Nasen, noch langweilig
Werden sie wie sonst geschneuzet,
Und das duckt sich noch scheinheilig,
Oder bläht sich, stolz gespreizet.

Schöner Süden! wie verehr ich
Deinen Himmel, deine Götter,
Seit ich diesen Menschenkehricht
Wiederseh, und dieses Wetter!
