Treasure Island

Johann Baptist Mayrhofer

(3 November 1787 – 5 February 1836 / Steyr)

Zum Punsche


Woget brausend, Harmonien,
Kehre wieder, alte Zeit;
Punschgefüllte Becher, wandert
In des Kreises Heiterkeit!

Mich ergreifen schon die Wellen,
Bin der Erde weit entrückt;
Sterne winken, Lüfte säuseln,
Und die Seele ist beglückt!

Was das Leben aufgebürdet,
Liegt am Ufer nebelschwer;
Steure fort, ein rascher Schwimmer,
In das hohe Friedensmeer.

Was des Schwimmers Lust vermehret,
Ist das Plätschern hinterdrein;
Denn es folgen die Genossen,
Keiner will der Letzte sein

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
