Morgenständchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

In den Wipfeln frische Lüfte,
Fern melod'scher Quellen Fall
Durch die Einsamkeit der Klüfte,
Waldeslaut und Vogelschall,
Scheuer Träume Spielgenossen,
Steigen all' beim Morgenschein
Auf des Weinlaubs schwanken Sprossen
Dir [in's]1 Fenster aus und ein.
Und wir nah'n noch halb in Träumen
Und wir thun in Klängen kund,
Was da draußen in den Bäumen
Singt der weite Frühlingsgrund.
Regt der Tag erst laut die Schwingen:
Sind wir Alle wieder weit --
Aber tief im Herzen klingen
Lange nach noch Lust und Leid.
