Der Blüthenbaum durchhaucht mit Duft

Language: German (Deutsch)

[Der]1 Blüthenbaum durchhaucht mit Duft
Die linde, weiche Abendluft,
Der ich die Brust erschlossen;
Mein Herz wie eine Knospe liegt
In Blüthenträume eingewiegt,
Von Blüthenduft umflossen.

Da blickt der Mond in's stille Thal
Und kaum hat sich sein milder Strahl
In meine Brust ergossen,
Als auch mein Herz, vom Traum erwacht,
In heiligstiller Mondscheinnacht
Als Blüthe sich erschlossen.

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.
