Daß er ganz ein Engel werde

Language: German (Deutsch)

Daß er ganz ein Engel werde, 
legt den kleinen Leib zur Ruh!
Aber nicht mit schwerer Erde,
schüttet ihn mit Blumen zu!

Zarter Blume gleich mein Kindchen,
halb noch träumend, kaum erweckt
und gleich ihr von jedem Windchen
rauh berührt und leicht erschreckt!

Submitted by Peter Donderwinkel
