O, wie wonnig ist's zu stürmen

Language: German (Deutsch)

O, wie wonnig ist's zu stürmen
Durch des Lenzes Fluren hin,
Wenn der Freude Sonnenrosse
Uns die lichten Bahnen zieh'n,
Wenn die langen, gold'nen Mähnen
Luftaushauchend Flammen sprüh'n,

Wenn die blitzesschnellen Hufe
Mit uns zu den Sternen flieh'n,
Und von Sonn' zu Sonn' getragen
Göttlich wir vor Göttern knieen!
Ach, wer griffe nicht vermessen
Nach den gold'nen Zügeln kühn,
Stürzt er auch von Phoebos' Wagen
Ikaros, zum Abgrund hin!
