Drinnen im Gemache schmiegt sich

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Persian (Farsi)

Drinnen im Gemache schmiegt sich
Ihrer Brust ein Fremder an,
Und ich lieg' auf ihrer Schwelle,
Preisgegeben dem Orkan.

Diese Stelle zu verlassen,
Riethe mir der Brauch der Welt,
Riethe mir das Ich, das kalte,
Riethe der Verstand mir an.

Doch so groß die Welt, die weite,
Eine Stelle giebt sie mir,
Diese nur, es geht von dieser
Nur zum Grabe meine Bahn.
