[Es führen über die Erde]1 
Straßen und Wege viel,
Aber alle haben 
Dasselbe Ziel.

Du kannst reiten und fahren 
Zu zweien und zu drein,
Den letzten Schritt mußt du
Gehen allein.

Drum ist kein Wissen 
[Noch]2 Können so gut,
Als daß man alles Schwere 
Alleine tut.

Wolke weht im Blauen hin.
Senke Deinen Blick und fühle
Selig sie mit weißer Kühle
Dir durch blaue Träume ziehn.

Flügelt ein kleiner blauer
Falter vom Wind geweht,
Ein perlmutterner Schauer,
Glitzert, flimmert, vergeht.
So mit Augenblicksblinken,
So im Vorüberwehn
Sah ich das Glück mir winken,
Glitzern, flimmern, [vergehn]1.

Aus dunkler Brandung gärend
Des Lebens bunter Braus
Und drüber immerwährend
Der Sterne hochgewölbtes Haus.

Mein Leben ist versunken,
Ich schweb am Weltenrand
Und atme tief und trunken
Der Feuerlüfte süßen Brand.

Und der ich kaum entronnen,
Des Lebens Zauberglut
Spült mich mit tausend Wonnen
Aufs neue in die große Flut.
