Nach Süden

Language: German (Deutsch)

Von allen Zweigen schwingen
Sich wandernde Vögel empor;
Weit durch die Lüfte klingen
Hört man den Reisechor:
Nach Süden! Nach Süden!
In den ewigen Blumenflor.

Ihr Vöglein singt munter hernieder,
Wir singen lustig hinaus.
Wenn der Lenz kommt, kehren wir wieder,
Wieder in Nest und Haus,
Von Süden! Von Süden!
Jetzt aber hinaus! hinaus!
