Laß deine Sichel rauschen

Language: German

Laß' deine Sichel rauschen,
Wohl rauschen durch das Korn;
Hör' auf, hör' auf zu weinen,
Hast du dein Lieb verlorn -
  Laß' rauschen!

Die roten und blauen Blumen,
Sie rauschen aufs breite Feld;
Und Lust und Liebe rauschen
Wohl in die weite Welt -
  Laß' rauschen!

Die Blünnlein und Bächlein rauschen,
Bis in das tiefe Meer;
Die Wolken und Winde rauschen,
Wer weiß wohin und woher -
  Laß' rauschen!

Laß' deine Sichel rauschen,
Laß rauschen, du armes Kind!
Denn was da blitzt und blühet,
Verrauschet so im Wind -
  Laß' rauschen!

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it and, despite my best efforts, this project has never received public funding. It is supported financially by roughly 0.013% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
