Fischerknabe

Language: German

Des Abendsterns ersehnter Schein
Beglänzt den Saum der Flut,
Der Knabe zieht den Kahn herein,
Der still im Hafen ruht.

"Mein Tagewerk ist [treu]1 vollbracht,
Doch, liebe Seele, sprich,
O sprich, wie soll die lange Nacht
Vergehn mir ohne dich?"

Am Ufer steht ein Weidenbaum
Und dran gelehnt ein Stein,
[Darunter]2 liegt in schmalem Raum
Ihr kaltes Totenbein.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.

I also have a wishlist at Amazon.ca.
