Zeiger


Meiner Schwester liebe Sprossen,
Ha, wie seid ihr aufgeschossen,
Seit ich über Berg und Tal
Von euch schied das letzte Mal!
Da ihr wachset und euch dehnet,
Sonnenzeiger unsrer Tage,
Mahnt ihr, wie das Leben jage,
Das ihr fest und ewig wähnet.
Kinderwuchs und Abendschatten
Zeigt dem Wandrer auf dem Steige
Abgemähter Blumenmatten,
Wie sich ihm die Sonne neige.

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
