by Johann Ludwig Uhland (1787 - 1862)

Abendwolken
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Wolken seh' ich abendwärts 
ganz in reinste Glut getaucht, 
Wolken ganz in Licht zerhaucht, 
die so schwül gedunkelt hatten. 
Ja, mir sagt mein ahnend' Herz:
Einst noch werden, ob auch spät, 
wenn die Sonne niedergeht, 
mir verklärt der Seele Schatten.
