Das Einhorn

Language: German (Deutsch)

Am Abend zur siebten Stunde
Kommt immer das sanfte Einhorn nah.
Auf seinen Spuren im Schnee
Erglühen dornlos die Rosen.
Am Abend zur siebten Stunde
Wird mein wilder Falke gezähmt.
Zitternd verebbt das Schlagen der Uhren.
Furchtlos teilen wir das Brot mit den Toten.
Zur siebten Stunde wird die Trauer gebannt,
Wenn das sanfte Einhorn nah.
Alle Dinge rücken ins Licht.
O, rechtes Maß, wenn das Einhorn naht
Zur siebenten Stunde.
