Der Todtenkranz

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich [werf]1 ein Kränzlein hinab ins Meer
Mein todtes Lieb ist drunten --
Du wilde See, trags hin und her,
Bis [Du den Todten gefunden]2.

Umspül' ihn weich, du starke See,
Daß sanft er bei Dir schliefe!
Ich bleib erstarrt auf der Felsenhöh --
Mein Leben ist in der Tiefe!
