Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock

(1724-1803 / Germany)

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

Mit deinem Fittig Cidli. Wie schlummert sie,
Wie stille! Schweig, o leisere Saite selbst!
Es welket dir dein Lorbersprößling,
Wenn aus dem Schlummer du Cidli lispelst!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
