Keine von der Erde Schönen
Waltet zaubernd gleich dir;
Auf der Flut ein Silbertönen
Dünkt deine Stimme mir.
Leiser wird des Meeres Rauschen,
Entzückt dir zu lauschen,
Legt sich der Wogen Schäumen,
Alle die Winde träumen;

Golden webt der Mond auf Wellen sein Netz,
Sanft scheint der Flut
Die volle Brust zu schwellen,
Wie ein Kind schlummernd ruht:
So sink' ich zu deinen Füßen,
Anbetend dich zu grüßen;
Wie die See vom West beweget,
Voll und sanft in mir sich's reget.
