Als ich auf dem Euphrat schiffte

Language: German (Deutsch)

Suleika:
 Als ich auf dem Euphrat schiffte,
 Streifte sich der goldne Ring 
 Finger ab, in Wasserklüfte,
 Den ich jüngst von dir empfing.
 
 Also träumt ich. Morgenröte
 Blitzt' ins Auge durch den Baum,
 Sag, Poete, sag, Prophete!
 Was bedeutet dieser Traum?
