Wer wird von der Welt verlangen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wer wird von der Welt verlangen,
Was sie selbst vermißt und träumet,
Rückwarts oder seitwarts blickend
Stets den Tag des Tags versäumet?
Ihr Bemühn, ihr guter Wille
Hinkt nur nach dem raschen Leben,
Und was du vor Jahren brauchtest,
Möchte sie dir heute geben.
