Nach dir schmacht' ich, zu dir eil' ich,...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nach dir schmacht' ich, zu dir eil' ich, du, geliebte Quelle, du! 
Aus dir schöpf' ich, bei dir ruh' ich, seh' dem Spiel der Wellen zu; 
Mit dir scherz' ich, von dir lern' ich heiter durch das Leben wallen,
Angelacht von Frühlingsblumen, und begrüßt von Nachtigallen.
