Goldne Sterne, blaue Glöckchen,
Wieviel wonnevolle Kelche!
Welche Schimmerpracht, ach, welche
Samtenen und seidnen Röckchen!
Blaue Glöckchen, goldne Sterne,
Tausend Blüten seh ich winken,
Weiche Blüten nah und ferne,
Nur aus einer sollt ich trinken?
Daß ich das doch nimmer lerne! ...
Goldne Sterne ...
Blaue Glöckchen ...

Schwebe, du Schmetterling,
Schwebe vorbei!
Leben ist leichtes Ding,
Fühlst du dich frei.

Leben ist Windeshauch,
Welt ist wie Gras,
Säuseln im Haselstrauch,
Elfischer Spaß.

Rot ist das Heidekraut,
Grün ist der Klee,
Himmel, so weit er blaut,
[Goldheller]1 See.

Schwebe, du Schmetterling,
Schwebe vorbei!
Über die Blumen schwing
Hoch dich, juchhei!
