Pilgers Morgenlied

Language: German

Morgennebel, Lila, 
Hüllen deinen Turm [um]1.
Soll ich ihn zum 
Letztenmal nicht sehn!
Doch mir schweben 
Tausend Bilder
Seliger [Erinnerung]2
Heilig warm ums Herz.
Wie er [so]3 stand, 
Zeuge meiner Wonne,
Als zum erstenmal 
Du dem [Fremdling]4
Ängstlich liebevoll 
Begegnetest,
Und mit einemmal 
Ewge Flammen 
In die Seel' ihm warfst.
Zische, Nord, 
Tausend-schlangen-züngig 
Mir ums Haupt!
Beugen sollst du's nicht!
Beugen magst du 
Kind'scher Zweige Haupt,
Von der Sonne 
Muttergegenwart geschieden.

Allgegenwärt'ge Liebe! 
[Durchglühst]5 mich,
[Beutst]6 dem Wetter die Stirn, 
Gefahren die Brust,
Hast mir gegossen 
Ins früh welkende Herz 
Doppeltes Leben,
Freude, zu leben, 
Und Mut!

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 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.
