Das Bächlein

Language: German (Deutsch)

Das Bächlein in der Wiese
Weiß zu erzählen viel,
Als käm's vom Paradiese
Und von der Engel Spiel.

Mit großen Augen schauen
Die Blumen in die Flut,
Wo wunderbar im Blauen
Der ganze Himmel ruht.

Und selbst die Sterne neigen
Sich lauschend bis zum Grund,
Wenn durch das Abendschweigen
Noch plauscht des Bächleins Mund.

Ich seh' die Wasser rinnen
Und hör' dem Murmeln zu,
Und immer muß ich sinnen:
So glücklich warst auch du!
