Die Lerchen
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Welch ein Schwirren, welch ein Flug?
Sei willkommen, Lerchenzug!
Jene streift der Wiese Saum,
Diese rauschet durch den Baum.

Manche schwingt sich himmelan,
Jauchzend auf der lichten Bahn,
Eine, voll von [Liedeslust]1,
Flattert hier in meiner Brust.
