Im Bambushaine meines Gartens hör ich
Die Nachtigall mit müder Stimme klagen, -- 
Sie trauert, weil die weissen Pflaumenblüten
In Scharen von den Bäumen niederfallen,
Weil nun der Lenz mit seinen Wundern flieht.

Du kommst nur, um die Blumen blühn zu sehen
Bei meinem Hause. Sind sie erst verwelkt,
So weiss ich wohl, dass ich mich Tag für Tag
Umsonst nach deinem Kommen sehnen werde.

An dunkelblauem Himmel steht der Mond.
Ich habe meine Lampe ausgelöscht,
schwer von Gedanken ist mein einsam Herz.
Ich weine, weine;
meine armen Tränen rinnen so heiß und bitter von den Wangen,
weil du so fern bist meiner großen Sehnsucht,
weil du es nie begreifen wirst,
wie weh mir ist, wenn ich nicht bei dir bin.

[Hör]1 es klagt die Flöte wieder
Und die kühlen [Brunnen]2 rauschen,
Golden wehn die Töne nieder,
Stille, [stille]3, laß uns lauschen!

Holdes Bitten, mild Verlangen,
[Wie es süß zum Herzen spricht]4!
Durch die Nacht die mich umfangen,
Blickt zu mir der Töne Licht.
