Mein Herz ist wie die dunkle Nacht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mein Herz ist wie die dunkle Nacht,
Wenn alle Wipfel rauschen;
Da steigt der Mond in voller Pracht
Aus Wolken sacht,
Und sieh, - der Wald verstummt in tiefem Lauschen.

Der Mond, der [helle]1 Mond bist du:
[Aus]2 deiner Liebesfülle
Wirf einen, einen Blick mir zu 
Voll Himmelsruh',
Und sieh, dies ungestüme Herz - wird stille.
