Manche Nacht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wenn die Felder sich verdunkeln,
fühl' ich wird mein Auge heller;
schon versucht ein Stern zu funkeln,
und die Grillen wispern schneller.

Jeder Laut wird bilderreicher,
das Gewohnte sonderbarer,
hinterm Wald der Himmel bleicher,
jeder Wipfel hebt sich klarer;

Und du merkst es nicht im Schreiten
wie das Licht verhundertfältigt
sich entringt den Dunkelheiten.
Plötzlich stehst du überwältigt.
