Nun ist der Tag geschieden

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nun ist der Tag geschieden
Mit seinem Drang und Schall,
Es weht ein kühler Frieden
Durch's Dunkel überall.

Wie still die Felder liegen!
Der Wald nur ist erwacht,
Und was er dem Lichte verschwiegen
Das singt er leise der Nacht.

Und was ich am lauten Tage
Dir nimmer sagen kann,
Nun möchte' ich dir's sagen und klagen -
O komm' und hör' mich an!
