Im Sommer

Language: German (Deutsch)

Blau liegt der See und die Ufer erglänzen,
Vor uns im Schilfe schaukelt der Kahn;
Laß uns die Stirne mit Rosen bekränzen,
Wie einst die glücklichen Alten gethan!
Löse den schwankenden Nachen vom Taue,
Daß er us trage bei günstigem Wind
Fort von den Menschen, weithin in’s Blaue,
Wo die Inseln der Seligen sind!
