Der Ackersmann
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Mein Blick bemißt die Linien unbeirrt,
Ich schreite in den Furchen Schritt für Schritt.
Die Erde dampft, die Pflugschar klappt und klirrt,
Und reiche Stärke steigt aus jedem Tritt!

Mein Morgen ist von reicher Fülle schwer,
Es schwillt mein Blut mit jedem Atemzug.
Ich fühl' in mir die Dinge um mich her
Und schreite mächtig hinter meinem Pflug!
