Von Ida

Language: German (Deutsch)

  Der Morgen blüht;
  Der Osten glüht;
Es lächelt aus dem dünnen Flor
Die Sonne matt und krank hervor.
  Denn ach, mein Liebling flieht!

  Auf welcher Flur,
  Auf wessen Spur,
So fern von Iden wallst du itzt,
O du, der ganz mein Herz besitzt,
  Du Liebling der Natur?

  Vernimmst du auch
  Im Morgenhauch
Das Ach, das Idens Brust entächzt,
Das Sehnen, drinn ihr Herz zerlechzt,
  Im kühlen Morgenhauch?

  Was [ahnest]1 du,
  Der Idens Ruh
Und Idens Freuden mit sich nahm?
Ach, [ahnest]1 du wohl Idens Gram,
  Und flehst für Idens Ruh?

  O kehre um!
  Kehr' um, kehr' um!
Zu deiner Einsamtraurenden!
Zu deiner [Ahnungschaurenden]2!
  Mein Einziger, kehr' um!
