by Marie Itzerott (1857 - ?)

Sehnsucht
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Quellen rauschen, Lüfte schweigen,
Lindenblüten duften sacht.
Durch die blaue, stille Nacht
geht von Herz zu Herz ein Neigen,
geht von Stern zu Stern ein Neigen
durch die junge Sommerpracht;
gab ich nicht in solcher Nacht
meine Seele dir, zu eigen.
