Im Astwerk wiegt sich der müde

Language: German (Deutsch)

Im Astwerk wiegt sich der müde,
Wind in Schlaf. Meine Hand
lässt eine blutrote Blüte
zerflattern im Sonnenbrand.
Ich habe schon viele Blüten
blühn und zerflattern sehn;
die Freuden und Wehen kommen und gehen,
man kann sie nicht behüten.
Ich habe auch verstreuet
mein Herzblut in das Leben hin;
ich weiss nicht, ob's mich reuet,
ich weiss nur, dass ich müde bin.
