Am Ufer

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Welt verstummt, dein Blut erklingt;
    in seinen hellen Abgrund sinkt
            der ferne Tag,

er schaudert nicht; die Glut umschlingt
    das höchste Land, im Meere ringt
            die ferne Nacht,

sie zaudert nicht; der Flut entspringt
    ein Sternchen, deine Seele trinkt
            das ewige Licht.
