Die Heimat

Language: German (Deutsch)

Froh kehrt der Schiffer heim an den stillen Strom
   Von fernen Inseln, wo er geerntet hat;
      Wohl möcht' auch ich zur Heimat wieder;
         Aber was hab' ich, wie Leid, geerntet? -
Ihr holden Ufer, die ihr mich aufgezogt,
   Stillt ihr der Liebe Leiden? ach! gebt ihr mir,
      Ihr Wälder meiner Kindheit, wann ich
         Komme, die Ruhe noch Einmal wieder?
