Wiegengesang

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich hab einmal in einem stillen Weiler,
der sich hoch oben zog den Berg entlang,
ein Lied gehört, das eine sanfte Mutter
dem sanften Schlummer ihres Kindes sang.

Wo sind die Berge meiner Jugend heute?
Was singt die Mutter heute ihrem Glück?
Ich weiß es nicht!  Doch kehrt zu Zeiten
das ferne Lied mir in den Sinn zurück!
