Laßt mich ruhen, laßt mich träumen,
Wo die Abendwinde linde
Säuseln in den Blütenbäumen,
Wo der Nachtigallen 
Lieder wieder 
In der Zweige Dämmrung schallen!

Wie des Mondes Silberhelle
Auf des Baches dunkler Welle,
Spielt in dieser lichten Stunde
Auf des [Weges]1 dunklem Grunde
Der vergangnen Tage 
Freud' und Klage.
Der Erinnrung Lust und Schmerzen
Flimmern auf in meinem Herzen -

Laßt mich ruhen, laßt mich träumen
Bei der Nachtigallen Sange
Unter vollen Blütenbäumen
Lange -- lange!
