by Conrad Ferdinand Meyer (1825 - 1898)

Neujahrsglocken
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG
In den Lüften schwellendes Gedröhne,
Leicht wie Halme beugt der Wind die Töne:

Leis verhallen, die zum ersten riefen,
Neu Geläute hebt sich aus den Tiefen.

Große Heere, nicht ein einzler Rufer!
Wohllaut flutet ohne Strand und Ufer.
