Escape in winter gardens

In the current lockdown the winter gardens of Wörlitz are out of bounds for most.  We´re only allowed to visit within a 15km circumference. Still, a number of locals made it out to this frosted location and some of us witnessed the romantic sundown as we were strolling around the frozen lake. Here are some impressions taken with my phone.

Winternacht

Verschneit liegt rings die ganze Welt, ich hab’ nichts, was mich freuet, verlassen steht der Baum im Feld, hat längst sein Laub verstreuet. Der Wind nur geht bei stiller Nacht und rüttelt an dem Baume, da rührt er seinen Wipfel sacht und redet wie im Traume. Er träumt von künft’ger Frühlingszeit, von Grün und Quellenrauschen, wo er im neuen Blütenkleid zu Gottes Lob wird rauschen.

Joseph Freiherr von Eichendorff
