Tal am Abend

Language: German (Deutsch)

So möcht' ich wandern immerzu
In sonnbeglänzter Weite,
Vor mir das Tal in Abendruh,
Den Bach ihm zum Geleite.
Wie quillt sein Murmeln lieb und licht
Wie Perlen zwischen Steinen,
Ein Märchengruß, ein hold' Gesicht,
Ein leises, verstohlenes Weinen.
So möcht' ich wandern immerzu
In unbegrenzte Weite:
Im Herzen Ruh', des Glückes Ruh',
Und dich an meiner Seite.
