Nach schlafloser Nacht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie durch das Fenster zieht die Frühluft leis,
Wehn sanfte Schauer meiner Seele zu;
Die Stirn wird kühl, sie glühte fieberheiß,
Und matter schlägt das Herz, willkommen, Ruh.

Nach einer Nacht, in Qualen hingewacht,
Bringt süßen Schlummer mir das Morgenrot.
Du bist ein Bild von meinem Leben, Nacht!
Sei, Morgen, mir ein Bild von meinem Tod!
