Ein Lieblingstraum, aus goldnen Nächten
Vortretend, schlank, in ernster Ruh,
Den Zauberschleier in der Rechten -
So schön bist du!

Mein Blick erstaunt und muß sich senken,
Mein Herz schließt alle Tore zu,
Dem Wunder heimlich nachzudenken-
So schön bist du!

Confirmed with Hermann Hesse, Sämtliche Werke, herausgegeben von Volker Michels, Band 10 Die Gedichte, bearbeitet von Peter Huber, Frankfurt am Main: Suhrkamp Verlag, 2002, page 41.
