by Alfred Mombert (1872 - 1942)

Spaziergang
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE NOR
  Sie wandeln durch des Waldes Grün.
Vögel singen und Blumen blühn.

  Ein blasser Mann und ein stilles Kind.
Sie schlürfen durstig den Frühlingswind.

  Und der Knabe bleibt verwundert stehn:
"Ich glaub', ich kann die Mutter sehn."

  Sie starren in das junge Grün . . .
Vögel singen und Blumen blühn.
