Gekommen ist der Maie,
Die Blumen und Bäume blühn,
Und durch die Himmelsbläue
Die [rosigen]1 Wolken ziehn.

Die [Nachtigallen]2 singen
Herab aus [der laubigen]3 Höh,
Die weißen Lämmer springen
Im weichen grünen Klee.

[Ich kann nicht singen und springen]4,
Ich liege krank im Gras;
Ich höre fernes Klingen,
Mir träumt, ich weiß nicht was.

Wie die Nelken duftig atmen!
Wie die Sterne, ein Gewimmel
Goldner Bienen, ängstlich schimmern
An dem veilchenblauen Himmel!

Aus dem Dunkel der Kastanien
Glänzt das Landhaus, weiß und lüstern,
Und ich hör die Glastür klirren
Und die liebe Stimme flüstern.

Holdes Zittern, süßes Beben,
Furchtsam zärtliches Umschlingen -
Und die jungen Rosen lauschen,
Und die Nachtigallen singen.

Es drängt die Not, es läuten die Glocken,
Und ach! ich hab den Kopf verloren!
Der Frühling und zwei schöne Augen,
Sie haben sich wider mein Herz verschworen.

Der Frühling und zwei schöne Augen
Verlocken mein Herz in neue Betörung!
Ich glaube, die Rosen und Nachtigallen
Sind tief verwickelt in dieser Verschwörung.

  Die schlanke Wasserlilie
Schaut träumend empor aus dem See;
Da grüßt der Mond herunter
Mit lichtem Liebesweh.

  Verschämt senkt sie [das]1 Köpfchen
Wieder [hinab]2 zu den Welln --
Da sieht sie zu ihren Füßen
Den armen [blassen]3 Geselln.
