Sehnsucht
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT
Alte Gruben schaufle um,
Tiefer werden sie und breiter;
Altes Leid wird nimmer stumm,
Denn im neuen schluchzt es weiter.

Alter Wein, der [unversehrt]1,
Kocht in seines Saftes Gluten;
Alte Sehnsucht schwillt und nährt
Sich [vom]2 eigenen Verbluten.
