Frühling war's in allen Zweigen
Und die braune Drossel sang
Und an deiner Schulter lehnt' ich,
O, wie war ich froh und bang!

Bin zu Füßen dir gesessen,
Hab' in Wonnen dich geküßt
Und kann's nimmermehr vergessen,
Was du mir gewesen bist!

Nimmermehr in all den Tagen,
Nimmer in der langen Zeit - - -
Was du mir getan zu liebe,
Was du mir getan zu leid'!

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.
