Vor lauter Lauschen und Staunen sei...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Vor lauter Lauschen und Staunen sei still,
du mein tieftiefes Leben;
dass du weisst, was der Wind dir will,
eh noch die Birken beben.

Und wenn dir einmal das Schweigen sprach,
lass deine Sinne besiegen.
Jedem Hauche gieb dich, gieb nach,
er wird dich lieben und wiegen.

Und dann meine Seele sei weit, sei weit,
dass dir das Leben gelinge,
breite dich wie ein Feierkleid
über die sinnenden Dinge.
