Sommerfaden in der Luft
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Sommerfaden in der Luft,
Flatternd durch den Nebelduft,
Sag', du leicht' Geweb' im Wind,
Wohin alle Blumen sind?

Kaum dass uns ein Glück erblüht, 
Seine Spur auch schon entflieht,
Sag', wohin es mir entwich, --
Sommerfaden, weise mich!
