by Stefan George (1868 - 1933)

Kahl reckt der baum
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE IRI
Kahl reckt der baum
Im winterdunst
Sein frierend leben ·
Lass deinen traum
Auf stiller reise
Vor ihm sich heben!
Er dehnt die arme –
Bedenk ihn oft
Mit dieser gunst
Dass er im harme
Dass er im eise
Noch frühling hofft!
