Im tiefen Walde einsam ruht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Im [tiefen]1 Walde einsam ruht
Der See mit dämmerblauem Schein.
Es zittert in [die dunkle]2 Fluth
Des Sommers heißer [Mittagschein]3.

Ein Wasserröslein still [erblüht]4
Im See, so einsam, [duftigroth]5,
Ein Schwan so einsam ihn durchzieht
Und singt sein Lied vor seinem Tod!
