Eingang

Language: German (Deutsch)

Welt der gestalten lang lebewohl ! . .
Öffne dich wald voll schlohweisser stämme!
Oben im blau nur tragen die kämme
Laubwerk und früchte: gold karneol.

Mitten beginnt beim marmornen male
Langsame quelle blumige spiele ·
Rinnt aus der wölbung sachte als fiele
Korn um korn auf silberne schale.

Schauernde kühle [schliesset]1 einen ring ·
Dämmer der frühe wölkt in den kronen ·
Ahnendes schweigen bannt die hier wohnen . . .
Traumfittich rausche! Traumharfe kling!
