Weil' auf mir, du dunkles Auge,
Übe deine ganze Macht,
Ernste, milde [träumerische]1,
Unergründlich süße Nacht.
Nimm mit deinem Zauberdunkel
Diese Welt von hinnen mir,
Daß du über meinem Leben
Einsam schwebest für und für.

Horch, wie still es wird im [dunkeln]1 Hain,
Mädchen, wir sind sicher und allein.

Still versäuselt hier am Wiesenhang
Schon der Abendglocke müder Klang.

Auf den Blumen, die sich dir verneigt,
Schlief das letzte Lüftchen ein und schweigt.

Sagen darf ich dir, wir sind allein,
Daß mein Herz ist ewig, ewig dein.
