Lehn deine Wang' an meine Wang',
Dann fliessen die Tränen zusammen;
Und an mein Herz drück fest dein Herz,
Dann schlagen zusammen die Flammen!

Und wenn in die große Flamme fliesst
Der Strom von unsern Tränen,
Und wenn [dich mein Arm]1 gewaltig umschließt -
Sterb' ich vor Liebessehnen!

Wenn durch die Piazetta
Die Abendluft weht,
[Dann]1 weißt du, Ninetta,
Wer wartend [hier]2 steht.
Du weißt, wer trotz Schleier
Und Maske dich kennt,
[Wie Amor die Venus
Am Nachtfirmament.]3

Ein Schifferkleid trag' ich
Zur selbigen Zeit,
Und zitternd dir sag' ich:
„Das Boot [liegt]4 bereit!
[O, komm’! jetzt, wo Lune’n]5
Noch Wolken umziehn,
Laß durch die Lagunen,
[Mein Leben,]6 uns fliehn!“

Ich habe mich neben die Welt gesetzt
In meine Rosenlaube;
Da bin ich in heiligem Frieden ergetzt
Bei Pfirsich und bei Traube. 

Und scheint mir Mond und Sonne herein,  -- 
Soll's ihnen unverboten sein. 

Und tritt zu Nacht die Liebste herein,  -- 
Das soll ihr unverboten sein. 

Und tritt mit Gunst das Alter herein,  -- 
Das soll ihm unverboten sein. 

Kein "Herr" nur darf mir je herein, 
Denn meine Laube, die ist mein. 

Ich habe mich über die Welt gesetzt
Als Falke ohne Haube,
Und bleib' in himmlischen Freuden ergetzt
In meiner Rosenlaube.  


Confirmed with Bibliothek der deutschen Klassiker, achtzehnter Band, fünfter Theil, compiled by Karl Arnold Schlönbach, Hildburghausen: Bibliographischen Instituts, 1861. Appears in Periode der Romantiker, page 459.
