Die letzte Nacht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Schon senkt sich still die letzte Liebesnacht,
Ein schöner Dämon mit besternten Schwingen;
Sie nimmt uns auf und trägt uns schwebend sacht
Durch alle Himmel, die gelind erklingen.
Verlaß uns nicht! Der Tag ist nicht mehr weit,
Sein Goldroß steigt herauf im dumpfen Trabe --
O nimm uns mit ins Meer Vergangenheit,
Daß es mit dir auf ewig uns begrabe.
