Das Geheimnis
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
Wo blüht das Blümchen, das nie verblüht?
Wo strahlt das Sternlein, das ewig glüht?
Dein Mund, o Muse! dein heil'ger Mund
Tu' mir das Blümchen und Sternlein kund.

"Verkünden kann es dir nicht mein Mund,
Macht es dein Innerstes dir nicht kund!
Im Innersten glühet und blüht es zart,
Wohl jedem, der es getreu bewahrt!"
