Wo bist du hin

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wo bist du hin,
Mein Hoffnungsstern?
Ach, mir so fern,
Bist mit süßem Prangen
Andern aufgegangen!
Erhebt euch, rauschende Abendwinde,
Schlagt an die Brust,
Weckt alle tötende Lust,
Allen Todesschmerz,
Daß das Herz,
Getränkt von blut'gen Tränen,
Brech' in trostlosem Sehnen.
Was lispelt ihr so linde,
So traulich, ihr dunklen Bäume?
Was blickt ihr [goldne]1 Himmelssäume
So freundlich hinab?
Zeigt mir mein Grab!
Das ist mein Hoffnungshafen,
Werd' unten ruhig schlafen.
