Laßt mich ruhen, laßt mich träumen

Language: German

Laßt mich ruhen, laßt mich träumen,
Wo die Abendwinde linde
Säuseln in den Blütenbäumen,
Wo der Nachtigallen 
Lieder wieder 
In der Zweige Dämmrung schallen!

Wie des Mondes Silberhelle
Auf des Baches dunkler Welle
Spielt in dieser lichten Stunde
Auf des [Weges]1 dunklem Grunde
Der vergangnen Tage 
Freud' und Klage.
Der Erinnrung Lust und Schmerzen
Flimmern auf in meinem Herzen -

Laßt mich ruhen, laßt mich träumen
Bei der Nachtigallen Sange
Unter vollen Blütenbäumen
Lange -- lange!

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.
