by Johann Baptist Mayrhofer (1787 - 1836)

Es mahnt der Wald, es ruft der Strom

Es mahnt der Wald, es ruft der Strom:
"Du holdes Bübchen zu uns komm!"
Der Knabe naht, und staunt, und weilt,
Und ist von allem Schmerz geheilt.

Aus Saaten flötet Wachtelschlag,
Mit irren Lichtern spielt der Tag;
Und auf den Blümlein in der Au
Erglänzt des Himmels feuchter Thau.

Ins hohe Gras legt er sich hin:
Läßt über sich die Wolken zieh'n -
An Mutter Erde angeschmiegt,
Hat ihn der Traumgott eingewiegt.
