Wenn ich an Deiner Seite
Im Abenddunkel geh',
Den Mond und sein Geleite,
Die tausend Sterne seh',

Dann möcht' ich den Mond umfangen
Und drücken an meine Brust,
Die Sterne herunter langen
In voller, sel'ger Lust!

Mit ihnen die Locken Dir schmücken!
Und schmücken die schöne Brust,
Ich möcht' Dich schmücken und drücken,
Und sterben vor Wonn' und Lust! --

«Lebe wohl» - Du [fühlest]1 nicht,
Was es heißt, dies Wort der Schmerzen;
Mit getrostem Angesicht
Sagtest du's und leichtem Herzen.

Lebe wohl! - Ach tausendmal
Hab' ich mir es vorgesprochen
Und in nimmersatter Qual
Mir das Herz damit gebrochen!

Die Höh'n und Wälder [schon]1 steigen
Immer tiefer in's Abendgold;
Ein Vöglein [frägt]2 in den Zweigen
Ob es Liebchen grüssen sollt'?

O Vöglein, du hast dich betrogen,
Sie wohnet nicht mehr im Tal,
Schwing' auf dich zum Himmelsbogen,
Grüss' sie droben zum letztenmal.
