Klarer Tag

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Himmel leuchtet aus dem Meer ;
Ich geh' und leuchte still wie er.

Und viele Menschen gehn wie ich,
Sie leuchten alle still für sich.

Zu weilen scheint nur Licht zu [gehn]1
Und durch die Stille [hinzuwehn]2.

Ein Lüftchen haucht den Strand entlang:
O wundervoller Müßiggang.
