by Heinrich Heine (1797 - 1856)

Wenn ich auf dem Lager liege
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE SPA
Wenn ich auf dem Lager liege
In Nacht und Kissen gehüllt,
So schwebt mir vor ein süßes,
Anmutig liebes Bild!

Wenn mir der stille Schlummer
Geschlossen die Augen kaum,
So schleicht das Bild sich leise
Hinein in meinen Traum

Doch mit dem Traum des Morgens
Zerrinnt es nimmermehr;
Dann trag' ich es im Herzen
Den ganzen Tag umher.
