Wie die Wolke nach der Sonne

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie die Wolke nach der Sonne
Voll Verlangen irrt und bangt
Und durchglüht vom Himmelswonne
Sterbend ihr am Busen hangt.

Wie die Sonnenblume richtet
Auf die Sonn' ihr Angesicht
Und nicht eh'r auf sie verzichtet
Bis ihr eignes Auge bricht:

Wie der Aar auf Wolkenpfade
Sehnend steigt ins Himmelszelt
Und berauscht vom Sonnenbade
Blind zur Erde niederfällt:

So auch muß ich schmachten, bangen,
Spähn und trachten, dich zu sehn,
Will an deinen Blicken hangen
Und an ihrem Glanz vergehn.
