Der Sommerabend

Language: German (Deutsch)

Eben sank die Sonne nieder
Und nun ward es Abend wieder.
Kühle Luft beginnt zu weh'n,
Süße Labung träufelt nieder,
Und es badet sich im Thau
Halm und Blum' in Feld und Au.

Stille wird es und es dunkelt,
Und der Abendstern schon funkelt.
Alles ist so müd' und matt,
Alles suchet Ruh und Frieden,
Nur die Nachtigall noch wacht,
Singt uns eine gute Nacht.
