Winternacht

Language: German

Mit Regen und Sturmgebrause
Sei mir willkommen, Dezembermond,
Und führ mich den Weg zum traulichen Hause,
Wo meine geliebte Herrin wohnt.

Nie hab' ich die Blüte des Maien,
Den blauenden Himmel, den blitzenden Tau
So fröhlich gegrüßt wie heute dein Schneien,
Dein Nebelgebräu und Wolkengrau.

Denn durch das Flockengetriebe,
Schöner, als je der Lenz gelacht,
Leuchtet und blüht der Frühling der Liebe
Mir heimlich nun in der Winternacht.

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.
