Der Wanderer

Flaumflocken flüstern vom Himmel leis.
Ein Wandrer steigt über Firn und Eis.
Die Schneefrau folgt ihm mit tückischem Schritt:

'Halt stille, mein Lieber, und nimm mich mit!
Der Abend ist nah, und der Gipfel ist fern.
Ich spiel Dir zur Kurzweil ein Liedchen gern.'

Sie setzt an die Lippe die grüne Schalmei,

[Hata Bildir]
