Über meinen Nächten

Language: German (Deutsch)

Über meinen Nächten 
Träumt ein leiser, goldner Klang; 
Scheues Flüstern in den Halmen, 
Dunkles Rauschen fremder Palmen, 
Halbverwehter Liebes sang. 

Über meinen Nächten 
Glühn und leuchten grosse Sterne, 
Sonnenhaft aus tiefen Blau, 
Deine Augen, schöne Frau, 
Grüßen mich aus weiter Ferne. 

Über meinen Nächten 
Weint ein unvergessnes Weh: 
Dass ich deine Lieben Reinheit, 
Deiner Locken Glanz und Feinheit 
Niemals widerseh'.
