by Karl von Lemcke (1831 - 1913)

Ich saß zu deinen Füßen
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA SPA
Ich saß zu deinen Füßen
In Waldeseinsamkeit;
Windesatmen, Sehnen
Ging durch die Wipfel breit.

In stummen Ringen senkt' ich
Das Haupt in deinen Schoß,
Und meine bebenden Hände
Um deine Knie ich schloß.

Die Sonne ging hinunter,
Der Tag verglühte all,
Ferne, ferne, ferne
Sang eine Nachtigall.
