Sommer für dich, gerne wär’s ich,
wenn Sommers Zeit ist um!
Musik dir noch, sind jetzt doch
Schwalb’ und Pirol verstummt!

Dir Blüte sein, meid’ Grab und Stein,
streu meine Verse weit!
Pflück mich geschwind, Röslein im Wind,
das blühet dir, allzeit!

Solang die Sonne scheint in dir,
welch’ Tag sollt’ düster werden mir
und welche Ferne weit,
solang die Schiffe ich kann sehn
die - eine Seltenheit -
bei dir vor Anker gehn?

Ein Wind erhob sich,
doch im Wald 
regte sich kein Blatt:
Er ließ sich mit der Kälte ein
jenseits der Vögel Reich -
weckte die Freud’ in Einsamkeit,
durchwogte, was getrennt,
brachte von der, die sich nicht zeigt,
Vertraun ins frost’ge Herz .

Nebst diesem Mai
ist uns
ein weiterer bekannt -
wie schön, 
zu rätseln über diesen Fremden!

Mancher, den wir kannten, erfährt
als süßes Wunder ihn -
Eine Natur ist gleichfalls dort,
wo Heilige und unser schlichter Nachbar 
den Mai begehn!

Dacht’ an nichts, nur um zu denken
an den schoflen Mann -
gab alles auf, damit ein Fremder
begleitet mich fortan.

Gunst des Wohlstands und des Status -
sah sie geringer an
als des Unbekannten Achtung -
glaube dies, wer kann.

Ließ die Heimat, ließ die Lieben,
kein Blick mehr für Natur
ob Sonnenschein, ob Sturmeswüten
hab alles ignoriert.

Ließ mein Los, ein zager Kiesel,
fallen in dein keck’res Meer -
Liebster, prüf, ob ich’s bereue,
oder gehör ganz dir.
