Der Stern

Language: German

Ich sehe ihn wieder den lieblichen Stern;
er winket hernieder, er nahte mir gern;
er wärmet und funkelt, je näher er kömmt,
die andern verdunkelt, die Herzen beklemmt.

Die Haare im Fliegen er eilet mir zu,
das Volk träumt von Siegen, ich träume von Ruh.
Die andern sich deuten die Zukunft daraus,
vergangene Zeiten mir leuchten ins Haus.

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, it 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.
