Wir gehen am Meer, im tiefen Sand

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wir gehen am Meer im tiefen Sand,
Die Schritte schwer und Hand in Hand.
Das Meer geht ungeheuer mit,
Wir werden kleiner mit jedem Schritt.
Wir werden endlich winzig klein
Und treten in eine Muschel ein.
Hier wollen wir tief wie Perlen ruhn,
Und werden stets schöner, wie die Perlen tun.

Submitted by Ferdinando Albeggiani
