Blaublümlein spiegelten sich im Bach

Language: German (Deutsch)

Blaublümlein spiegelten sich im Bach
Und riefen den eilenden Wellen nach:

Die lachten: Wir müssen zum Meere hin,
Und aus den Augen ist aus dem Sinn,

Blauäuglein hatte ein Mägdelein,
Die strahlten dem Knaben ins Herz hinein:

Der Knabe zog in die Welt hinaus,
Da blühte und welkte manch Blumenstrauß.

Und als er allein auf unendlicher See,
Da grüßten ihn Sterne, da faßt' ihn ein Weh,

Aus rauschenden Wogen sangen herauf
Die Tropfen im Meere aus Bächleins Lauf:

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 about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
