Dioskuren, [Zwillingsterne]1,
Die ihr leuchtet meinem Nachen,
Mich beruhigt auf dem Meere
Eure Milde, euer Wachen.

Wer auch, fest in sich begründet,
Unverzagt dem Sturm begegnet;
Fühlt sich doch in euren Strahlen
Doppelt muthig und gesegnet.

Dieses Ruder, das ich schwinge,
Meeresfluthen zu zertheilen;
Hänge ich, so ich geborgen,
Auf an eures Tempels Säulen.

Confirmed with Gedichte von Johann Mayrhofer. Wien. Bey Friedrich Volke. 1824, page 183.

Note: Schubert received Mayrhofer's texts in handwriting; the manuscripts of his cycle Heliopolis, dedicated to Franz von Schober, are preserved in the Vienna City Library. The printed edition of Mayrhofer's poems appeared much later. This poem (originally no. 20 of the cycle) is not part of the cycle in the printed edition of 1843.

Wie deutlich des Mondes Licht
Zu mir spricht,
Mich beseelend zu der Reise:
"Folge treu dem alten Gleise,
Wähle keine Heimath nicht.
Ew'ge Plage
Bringen sonst die schweren Tage.
Fort zu andern
Sollst du wechseln, sollst du wandern,
Leicht entfliehend jeder Klage."

Sanfte Ebb' und hohe Fluth,
Tief im Muth,
Wandr' ich so im [Dunkel]1 weiter,
Steige muthig, singe heiter,
Und die Welt erscheint mir gut.
Alles reine
Seh' ich mild im Wiederscheine,
Nichts verworren
In des Tages Gluth verdorren:
Froh umgeben, doch alleine.

Im kalten, rauhen Norden
Ist Kunde mir geworden
Von [einer]1 Sonnenstadt.
Wo weilt das Schiff, wo [winkt]2 der Pfad,
Die mich zu [ihren]3 Hallen tragen?
Von Menschen konnt' ich nichts erfragen, -
Im Zwiespalt waren sie [verloren]4.
Zur Blume, die sich Helios erkoren,
Die ewig in sein Antlitz blickt,
Wandt' ich mich nun, - und ward entzückt:

»Wende, so wie ich, zur Sonne
Deine [Blicke]5! Dort ist Wonne,
Dort ist Leben; 
Treu ergeben,
Pilg're zu, und zweifle nicht;
Ruhe findest du im Licht;
Licht erzeuget alle Gluten, -
Hoffnungspflanzen, Thatenfluten!«

Confirmed with Gedichte von Johann Mayrhofer. Neue Sammlung. Aus dessen Nachlasse mit Biographie und Vorwort herausgegeben von Ernst Freih. v. Feuchtersleben. Wien, 1843. Verlag von Ignaz Klang, Buchhändler, pages 195-196.

Note: Schubert received Mayrhofer's texts in handwriting; the manuscripts of his cycle Heliopolis, dedicated to Franz von Schober, are preserved in the Vienna City Library. The printed edition of Mayrhofer's poems appeared much later and presents the texts in a revised version. This poem (originally no. 5 of the cycle) is now no. 1 of the cycle in the printed edition. Here the cycle is preceded by a motto:

Ein altes Thema, vorgetragen
In grauen Zeiten, laß uns variiren!
Wir dürfen, wenn wir auch Ikarisiren -
Uns öfters noch zur Sonne wagen!
1821.

1 Schubert; and Mayrhofer's manuscript: "einer Stadt, der"
2 Schubert; and Mayrhofer's manuscript: "ist"
3 Schubert: "jenen"
4 Schubert; and Mayrhofer's manuscript: "verworren"
5 Schubert; and Mayrhofer's manuscript: "Augen"
