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.

Mächtige Stürme reissen Bäume 
mit ihren Wurzeln aus.
Mir aber -- o Wunder -- 
riss mit allen Wurzeln 
aus der Alltäglichkeit des Daseins 
in ein seliges Reich empor 
ein leises, süsses, liebevolles Lüftchen: 
Der Atem deines Mundes!
