by Theodor Storm (1817 - 1888)

Im Sessel du, und ich zu deinen Füßen
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Im Sessel du, und ich zu deinen Füßen -
Das Haupt zu dir gewendet, saßen wir;
Und sanfter fühlten wir die Stunden fließen,
Und stiller ward es zwischen mir und dir;
Bis unsre Augen ineinander sanken
Und wir berauscht der Seele Atem tranken.
