by Christian Morgenstern (1871 - 1914)

Traumwald
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT FRE
Des Vogels Aug verschleiert sich;
Er sinkt in Schlaf auf seinem Baum.
Der Wald verwandelt sich in Traum
Und wird so tief und feierlich.

Der Mond, der stille, steigt empor:
Die kleine Kehle zwitschert matt.
Im ganzen Walde schwingt kein Blatt.
Fern läutet, fern, der Sterne Chor.
