Hell glühn die Sterne im dunklen Blau

Language: German

Hell glühn die Sterne im dunklen Blau,
Voll duften die Blumen im Abendtau,
Und in der Laube von Bülbüls Lied
Süss eingesungen schlummert Nahid.
Sanft bebt die Lippe, die Wangen glüh'n,
Die schönste Rose im Myrtengrün,
Und schlüge sie erst die Augen auf,
Ihr Sterne hemmtet den Strahlenlauf.
Ihr Augen droben, ihr Sterne hier,
Ihr Blumenwagen, du Blütenzier,
O weilt ich ewig in deiner Pracht!
O Blumen! Sterne! O sel' ge Nacht!

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 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.
