Abendlandschaft
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Der Hirt blast seine Weise, 
Von fern ein Schuß noch fällt, 
Die Wälder rauschen leise 
Und Ströme tief im Feld. 

Nur hinter jenem Hügel 
Noch spielt der Abendschein - 
O hätt ich, hätt ich Flügel,
Zu fliegen da hinein!

Confirmed with Joseph Freiherrn von Eichendorff, Gedichte, Berlin, Verlag von M. Simion, 1841, page 220.
