Die Aufgeregten

Language: German

Welche tiefbewegten Lebensläufchen,
Welche Leidenschaft, welch wilder Schmerz!
Eine Bachwelle und ein Sandhäufchen
Brachen gegenseitig sich das Herz!

Eine Biene summte hohl und stieß
Ihren Stachel in ein Rosendüftchen,
Und ein holder Schmetterling zerriß
Den azurnen Frack im Sturm der Mailüftchen!

Und die Blume schloß ihr Heiligtümchen
Sterbend über dem verspritzten Tau!
Welche tiefbewegten Lebensläufchen,
Welche Leidenschaft, welch wilder Schmerz!


Musical settings (art songs, Lieder, mélodies, (etc.), choral pieces, and other vocal works set to this text), listed by composer (not necessarily exhaustive)

Notes about green, red, and white dots

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.
