by Joseph Viktor von Scheffel (1826 - 1886)

Sonne taucht in Meeresfluten
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Sonne taucht in Meeresfluten,
Himmel [strahlt]1 in letzten Gluten,
Langsam will der Tag verscheiden,
Ferne Abendglocken läuten.
Dein gedenk' ich, Margaretha!

Haupt gelehnt [an]2 Felsens Kante,
Fremder Mann in [fremden]3 Lande.
Um den [Fels]4 die Wellen schäumen,
Durch die Seele zieht ein Träumen.
Dein gedenk' ich, Margaretha!
