Schönheitszauber erwirbt [Keiner]1 so leicht ohne der Sprödigkeit
Mitgift. Dieses erfuhr Jeder und ich, Klagender, weiß es auch!
Zwar mir lächelte manch freundlicher Blick süße Verständigung
Zu; bald wär ich erhört, brächte mir, ach! blinder Genuß Genuß;
Doch ich seufze ja nur Liebe zu dir, Liebe zu dir ja nur!
Ach, und während ich hier klage, vielleicht dient ein Gestirn indes
Als Wegweiser für Ihn, welcher den Arm über die Schulter dir
Legt, und Küsse vielleicht, freudeberauscht, griechischen Lippen stiehlt.

Leise [zieht]1 durch mein Gemüt
Liebliches Geläute,
Klinge, kleines Frühlingslied,
Kling hinaus ins Weite.

[Kling]2 hinaus bis an das Haus,
Wo die [Blumen]3 sprießen,
Wenn du eine Rose schaust,
Sag, ich laß sie grüßen.

Lethe! Brich die Fesseln des Ufers, gieße 
Aus der Schattenwelt mir herüber deine 
Welle, daß den Wunden der bangen Seel' ich
  Trinke Genesung.1

Frühling kommt mit Duft und Gesang und Liebe,
Will wie sonst mir sinken ans Herz; doch schlägt ihm 
Nicht das Herz entgegen wie sonst. -- O Lethe! 
  Sende die Welle!
