Enzianblüte

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du stehst von Sommerfreude trunken
Im seligen Licht und atmest kaum,
Der Himmel scheint in deinen Kelch versunken,
Die Lüfte wehn in deinem Flaum.

Und wenn sie alle Schuld und Pein
Von meiner Seele könnten wehen,
So dürft ich wohl dein Bruder sein
Und stille Tage bei dir stehen.

So wäre meinen Weltenfahrten
Ein selig leichtes Ziel ersehn,
Gleich dir durch Gottes Träumegarten
Als blauer Sommertraum zu gehn.
