So viel Wolken droben wiegen

Language: German (Deutsch)

So viel Wolken droben wiegen,
So viel Vögel [als da]1 fliegen,
So viel Grüße,
So viel Küsse
Send' ich in mein Vaterland.

So viel Wellen heimwärts schwimmen,
So viel Stern' am Himmel glimmen,
[So viel Sehnen,
So viel Thränen]2
Send' ich in mein Vaterland.

So viel Blumen als da blühen,
So viel Lüfte als da ziehen,
So viel Schmerzen
Sind im Herzen
Um das [liebe]3 Vaterland.

So viel Tropfen in dem Bogen,
So viel Grüße heimwärts flogen,
So viel Lieben
Sind geblieben
In dem schönen Vaterland.

K. Greulich sets stanzas 1-3
