Im Grase thaut's, die Blumen träumen 

Language: German (Deutsch)

Im Grase thaut's, die Blumen träumen 
Von ihrem bunten Honigdieb,
Und oben flüstert's in den Bäumen:
Schläfst du? schläfst du, mein trautes Lieb? 
Der Mond scheint durch den grünen Wald.
Ein Aestlein wankt mit leisem Wiegen,
In dunkler Blätterheimlichkeit
Regt sich, ein Kosen, Schweben, Schmiegen: 
Dir treu, dir treu in Ewigkeit! 
Der Mond scheint durch den grünen Wald.

Nun wird es still in Luft und Zweigen,
Ein wonnig Athmen hebt die Brust,
Dich küßt die Nacht mit süßem Schweigen,
Ruh' aus, ruh' aus von Lieb' und Lust,
Der Mond scheint durch den grünen Wald.

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.
