Eingehüllt in graue Wolken

Language: German (Deutsch)

Eingehüllt in graue Wolken,
Schlafen jetzt die großen Götter,
Und ich höre, wie sie schnarchen,
Und wir haben wildes Wetter.

Wildes Wetter Sturmeswüten
Will das arme Schiff zerschellen
Ach, wer zügelt diese Winde
Und die herrenlosen Wellen!

Kanns nicht hindern, daß es stürmet,
Daß da dröhnen Mast und Bretter,
Und ich hüll mich in den Mantel,
Um zu schlafen wie die Götter.
