Wozu das Schimmern und der helle Tau?

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wozu das Schimmern und der helle Tau?
Wozu die Blumen auf allen Wegen?
Man kann sich baden in Silber und Blau
Und sich durstig an ein Tulpenblatt legen.

Man kann tanzen zu seinen Geigen,
Vor Frau Drossel sich verneigen,
Oder hoch in den Himmel steigen.

Es wachsen Wunder auf der Erden,
Ein Wald, ein Strauch und ein Rosenbusch,
Und alle die lieben Wunder warden
Einem Falter zu eigen -- husch -- husch.
