Das lockere saatgefilde lechzet krank

Language: German (Deutsch)

Das lockere saatgefilde lechzet krank
Da es nach hartem froste schon die lauern
Lenzlichter fühlte und der pflüge zähne
Und vor dem stoß der vorjahr-stürme keuchte:
Sei mir nun fruchtend bad und linder trank
Von deiner nackten brust das blumige schauern
Das duften deiner leichtgewirrten strähne
Dein hauch dein weinen deines mundes feuchte.
