Was raschelt in den Bäumen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Was raschelt in den Bäumen,
was flüstert im Gezweig?
Von tausend süßen Träumen
erzittert See und Teich.
Die bunten Sänger ziehen
durch den begrünten Wald,
daß rings von Melodien
das Echo wiederhallt1.
Und auf den Wellen gleiten
die Kähne rasch entlang,
und durch die Gärten schreiten
die Mägdlein mit Gesang.
Und in dem Herzen webt es
mit fröhlich frischer Kraft,
die ganze Welt durchbebt es
in trunkner Leidenschaft,
ja selbst des Greises Lallen
stimmt in den Jubel ein.
O Lenz, dein Hauch schenkt Allen
der Jugend Götterwein.
