O Heimatland aus Stein und Licht

O Heimatland aus Stein und Licht

O Heimatland aus Stein und Licht,
o Silberstamm und Silberblatt,
o Flammenhimmel, Flammenstrand,
o weiße Mauer, weiße Stadt
und blendendblaue ruhige Bucht!
Mein steiles, karges, klares Land –
o sonnensatte Lebenslust!

The poem was inspired by this woodcut, “Elba –
Land der Esel”
by Ottilie Ehlers-Kollwitz (1955).
