Ein Sonntag

Language: German (Deutsch)

So geht ein Sonntag still zu Ende, auf den du lange dich gefreut ...
ein müder Bettler steht am Weg,
am heimatlosen,
und spielt ein Leierkastenlied ...
ein leises Abendrot verweint am Himmel ...
und aus den Gärten her, sommermüd,
kommt's wie ein Duft von heimlich verwelkenden Rosen.
