by Joseph Viktor von Scheffel (1826 - 1886)

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

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