by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

Warum doch erschallen
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
Warum doch erschallen
himmelwärts die Lieder?
Zögen gerne nieder
Sterne, die droben
Blinken und wallen,
Zögen sich Lunas
Lieblich Umarmen,
Zögen die warmen,
Wonnigen Tage
Seliger Götter
Gern uns herab!
