Johann Joseph Clahsen

Wanderer über der Welt (nach Shelley: The World's Wanderers)

Nach Percy Bysshe Shelley:
The World's Wanderers


Sag an, du Stern, wer weiß die Zahl
All der Bahnen, die dein Strahl
Nachtlichthell am Himmelssaal
Heimwärts ist geflogen?


Luna, sehnsuchtsblaß beschaut
Und heimatlos, du Himmelsbraut,
Wer hat dich, da der Morgen graut,
Tief hinab gezogen?


Irrer Wind, aus Süd und Nord
Vertriebner Gast, an welchem Ort
Flaut dein Flug vorm stillen Hort
In Wipfeln oder Wogen

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
