Keine Rast

Language: German (Deutsch)

Seele, banger Vogel du, 
Immer wieder mußt du fragen:
Wann nach so viel wilden Tagen 
Kommt der Friede, kommt die Ruh? 

O ich weiß: kaum haben wir 
Unterm Boden stille Tage, 
Wird vor neuer Sehnsucht dir
Jeder liebe Tag zur Plage. 

Und du wirst, geborgen kaum,
Dich um neue Leiden mühen
Und voll Ungeduld den Raum 
Als der jüngste Stern durchglühen.
