by Christian Morgenstern (1871 - 1914)

Schneefall
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): FRE
So still zu liegen und an dich zu denken,
indessen Legionen weißer Blumen
mein dunkles Ich in ihren Schnee versenken!

Warum nicht also sterben! einst, wenn alles
beschlossen lieget in uns, um uns her,
das Haupt im Schoß des weißen Wolkenfalles.
