by Franz Evers (1871 - 1947)

Heiliger Himmel
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Sommerträume ihr, purpurne Abende ... 
Odins waltender Speer 
Teilt die Wolkenbahn, und ein letzter 
Goldblitz flammt durch Luft und Land. 

Asgards heilige Hallen krönen den Himmel 
Blühende Götter wandeln in seliger Jugend
Über die funkelnden Gefilde des Lichts.
Sommertraüme ihr: purpurne Abende.
