Es ist schon spät geworden

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es ist schon spät geworden,
die Sternlein schlummern lind
im weichen Wolkenbette.
Schlummre auch Du mein Kind!
In stillen Wiesenblumen
träumet der müde Wind
von rothen Morgenrosen.
Träume auch Du, mein Kind!
Nur meine Lieb' und Treue
beide noch munter sind
und schwingen sich über die Wälder,
zu wachen bei dir, mein Kind!

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.
