Die Wolken kommen gezogen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Wolken kommen gezogen 
Am Abendhimmel daher;
Es rollet Wogen auf Wogen
Zum Strande das rauschende Meer. 

Die Sehnsucht kommt gezogen
Mit ihnen zum Herzen hinan.
Ihr ziehenden Wolken und Wogen
Ihr habt's mir angethan.

Ihr öffnet wieder die Quellen
Der Lieder in tiefster Brust.
Ihr schenkt mir, ihr Wolken und Wellen
Wieder der Thränen Lust.
