by Siegfried Fleischer (1856 - 1924)

Herbstgefühl
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Verwelkte Blätter, entseelte Götter,
Erloschne Liebe, versunknes Glück.
Das Laub der Bäume, der Jugend Träume,
Sie sinken mählich in das Nichts zurück.

Was rauscht die Linde, was seufzt im Winde?
Gar todesbange so Busch wie Strauch.
Erstorbene Triebe, erloschene Liebe,
die Welt durchschauert ein Grabeshauch.
