Ich hab’ dies Leben nur
zu führen hier;
auch keinen Tod, denn den,
verbannt von hier;

Kein Band an dies, was kommt,
noch neues Tun,
es sei, in deinem Geist
und Herz zu ruhn.

Mit an der Nacht zu tragen,
und mit am Morgen.
Was uns fehlt an Glück
und Spott, besorgen.

Hier ein Stern und ein Stern dort,
mancher verirrt sich.
Hier ein Nebel, einer dort,
dann regt der Tag sich!

Bin ein Niemand! Wer bist du?
Bist auch ein Niemand du?
Dann sind zu zweit wir - sag’s niemand!
Wir würden dann verbannt.

Wie monoton, jemand zu sein -
ein lauter Frosch gleichsam:
Der stellt sich vor, tagaus, tagein
Bewunderern im Schlamm!

Sommer für dich, gerne wär’s ich,
wenn Sommers Zeit ist um!
Musik dir noch, sind jetzt doch
Schwalb’ und Pirol verstummt!

Dir Blüte sein, meid’ Grab und Stein,
streu meine Verse weit!
Pflück mich geschwind, Röslein im Wind,
das blühet dir, allzeit!
