Wie der Mond sich leuchtend dränget

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie der Mond sich leuchtend dränget
Durch den dunkeln Wolkenflor,
Also taucht aus dunkeln Zeiten
Mir ein lichtes Bild hervor.

Saßen all auf dem Verdecke,
Fuhren stolz hinab den Rhein,
Und die sommergrünen Ufer
Glühn im Abendsonnenschein.

Sinnend saß ich zu den Füßen
Einer Dame, schön und hold;
In ihr liebes bleiches Antlitz
Spielt' das rote Sonnengold.

Lauten klangen, Buben sangen,
Wunderbare Fröhlichkeit!
Und der Himmel wurde blauer,
Und die Seele wurde weit.

Märchenhaft vorüberzogen
Berg und Burgen, Wald und Au; -
Und das alles sah ich glänzen
In dem Aug der schönen Frau.
