You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Es war, als hätt' der Himmel,
Die Erde still geküßt,
Daß sie im Blütenschimmer
Von ihm [nun]1 träumen müßt.

Die Luft ging durch die Felder,
Die Ähren wogten sacht,
Es rauschten leis die Wälder,
So sternklar war die Nacht.

Und meine Seele spannte
Weit ihre Flügel aus,
Flog durch die stillen [Lande]2,
Als flöge sie nach Haus.

Veilchen, [unter]1 Gras versteckt
Wie mit Hoffnung zugedeckt,
Veilchen, freue Dich mit mir,
Sonne kommt ja auch zu Dir.

Sonne scheint mit Liebesschein
Tief Dir in Dein Herz hinein,
Trocknet Deine Tränen Dir --
Veilchen, freue Dich mit mir!

Gute Nacht, du süßes Kind,
Mögen Engel dich behüten,
Und der Schlummer leis und lind 
Streue dir die schönsten Blüten. 

Gute Nacht, und träume mild
Von den Schwesterlein, den Rosen,
Die, dein schönes Ebenbild,
Mit den Frühlingswinden kosen. 

Gute Nacht, und denke mein 
Mindestens in holden Träumen,
Mochtest so im Tagesschein
Meiner zu gedenken säumen. 

Gute Nacht, und bleib mir gut,
Lächle gül;tig mir entgegen;
Deiner Blicke Zauber ruht
Auf mir wir ein milder Segen. 

Gute Nacht, die Äuglein zu,
Schließ die holden Blicke gerne;  
Schöner, selbst in Schlafesruh',
Sind sie doch als alle Sterne.  


Confirmed with Gedichte von C. Dräxler-Manfred, dritte durchaus verbesserte und vermehrte Auflage, Frankfurt am Main: Johann David Sauerländer, 1838, page 81.
