Mir träumt', ich ruhte wieder

Language: German (Deutsch)

  Mir träumt', ich ruhte wieder
Vor meines Vaters Haus
Und schaute fröhlich nieder
Ins alte Thal hinaus,
Die Luft mit lindem Spielen
Ging durch das Frühlingslaub,
Und Blütenflocken fielen
Mir über Brust und Haupt.

  Als ich erwacht, da schimmert
Der Mond vom Waldesrand,
Im falben Scheine flimmert
Um mich ein fremdes Land,
Und wie ich ringsher sehe:
Die Flocken waren Eis,
Die Gegend war vom Schnee,
Mein Haar vom Alter weiß.
