Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock

(1724-1803 / Germany)

Poems of Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock

1. Hermann and Thusnelda 9/24/2010
2. Ihr Slummer 9/24/2010

Ihr Slummer

Sie schläft. O gieß ihr, Schlummer, geflügeltes
Balsamisch Leben über ihr sanftes Herz!
Aus Edens ungetrübter Quelle
Schöpfe den lichten, krystallnen Tropfen!

Und laß ihn, wo der Wange die Röth' entfloh,
Dort duftig hinthaun! Und du, o bessere,
Der Tugend und der Liebe Ruhe,
Grazie deines Olymps, bedecke

[Hata Bildir]
