Des Tages laute Stimmen schweigen

Language: German

Des Tages laute Stimmen schweigen,
Und dunkeln will es allgemach,
Ein letztes Schimmern in den Zweigen,
Dann zieht auch dies der Sonne nach.

Noch leuchten ihre Purpurgluten
Um jene Höhen, kahl und fern,
Doch in des Äthers klaren Fluten
Erzittert schon ein blasser Stern.

Ihr müden Seelen rings im Kreise,
So ist euch wieder Ruh gebracht;
Aufatmen hör ich euch noch leise,
Dann küßt euch still und mild die Nacht.

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 is supported financially 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.
