Eine starke, schwarze Barke

Language: German (Deutsch)

Eine starke, schwarze Barke
segelt trauervoll dahin.
Die vermummten und verstummten
Leichenhüter sitzen drin.

Toter Dichter, stille liegt er,
mit entblößtem Angesicht;
seine blauen Augen schauen
immer noch zum Himmelslicht.

Aus der Tiefe klingts, als riefe
eine kranke Nixenbraut,
und die Wellen, sie zerschellen
an dem Kahn, wie Klagelaut.
