by Christian Morgenstern (1871 - 1914)

Du bist mein Land
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Du bist mein Land,
ich deine Flut,
die sehnend dich ummeeret;
Du bist der Strand,
dazu mein Blut
ohn' Ende wiederkehret.

An Dich geschmiegt,
mein Spiegel wiegt
das Licht der tausend Sterne;
und leise rollt
dein Muschelgold
in meine Meergrundferne.
