by Nikolaus Lenau (1802 - 1850)

Stumme Liebe
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Ließe doch ein hold Geschick
Mich in deinen Zaubernähen,
Mich in deinem Wonneblick
Still verglühen und vergehen;

Wie das fromme Lampenlicht
Sterbend glüht in [stummer]1 Wonne
Vor dem schönen Angesicht
Dieser himmlischen Madonne! -
