Die Erde liegt so wüst und leer

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Erde liegt so wüst und leer,
Kein grüner Schimmer rings umher,
Der Weg verschneit, die Luft so rauh --
Und doch der Himmel klar und blau!

Die Seele still und kummerreich,
Von fern nur kalt und thränenbleich
Ein Mondglanz der Erinnerung --
Und doch das Hoffen noch so jung?
