Wie still, wie weit

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie still, wie weit 
Nur Rosenduft,
Nur weiche Luft  -- 
Wie still, wie weit,

Vom Stern beschaut,
Vom Mond bethaut,
Geküßt vom Wind
So zart und lind  -- 
Wie schön, wie weit

Hier ruh' ich aus
Vom Weltgebraus,
Hier schlaf' ich ein
Beim Wildröslein  -- 
Wie still, wie weit
