Nikolaus Franz Niembsch Edler von Strehlenau

(25 August 1802 - 22 August 1850 / Schadat)

Zuflucht


Armes Wild im Waldesgrunde,
Schlägt die Jagd dir eine Wunde,
Flüchtest du zur tiefsten Stelle,
An des Walds geheimste Quelle,
Daß sie dir mit frischer Kühle
Lindernd deine Wunde spüle.
Mensch, du flieh mit deinem Schmerz
An die heimatlichste Stelle,
An des Trostes reinste Quelle,
Flüchte an das Mutterherz.
Doch die Mütter sterben bald;
Hat man dir begraben deine,
Flüchte in den tiefsten Wald
Mit dem wunden Reh - und weine.

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.
