Musikalischer Eindruck

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich war ein schlanker Becher
entgegen einem goldnen Krug geneigt,
aus dem purpurnes Weines Fülle langsam
in meine helle Silberwölbung rann,
dass deren vielgestaltne Spruch' und Bilder,
damit sie Jahr und Tage bunt bedeckt,
sich vielfach schaukelnd in ihm spiegelten,
bis sie zuletzt in ihm versanken und
so meine ganze Welt in süßem Weine stand.
