Schillers Bestattung

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein ärmlich düster brennend Fackelpaar, das Sturm
Und Regen jeden Augenblick zu löschen droht.
Ein flatternd Bahrtuch. Ein gemeiner Tannensarg
Mit keinem Kranz, dem kargsten nicht, und kein Geleit!
Als brächte eilig einen Frevel man zu Grab.
Die Träger hasteten. Ein Unbekannter nur,
Von eines weiten Mantels kühnem Schwung umweht,
Schritt dieser Bahre nach. Der Menschheit Genius wars.
