by Eduard Mörike (1804 - 1875)

Auf einem Kirchturm
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Ein Glockentonmeer wallet
Zu Füßen uns und hallet
Weit über Stadt und Land.
So laut die Wellen schlagen,
Wir fühlen mit Behagen
Uns hoch zu Schiff getragen
Und blicken schwindelnd von dem Rand.
