by Stefan George (1868 - 1933)

Im windes‑weben
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Im windes-weben 
War meine frage
Nur träumerei.
Nur lächeln war
Was du gegeben.
Aus nasser nacht
Ein glanz entfacht --
Nun drängt der mai ·
Nun muss ich gar
Um dein aug und haar
Alle tage
In sehnen leben.
