Die Blätter fallen, fallen wie von weit, 
als welkten in den Himmeln ferne Gärten; 
sie fallen mit verneinender Gebärde. 
Und in den Nächten fällt die schwere Erde 
aus allen Sternen in die Einsamkeit. 
Wir alle fallen. Diese Hand da fällt. 
Und sieh die andre an: es ist in allen. 
Und doch ist einer, welcher dieses Fallen 
unendlich sanft in seinen Händen hält.

Vor lauter Lauschen und Staunen sei still,
du mein tieftiefes Leben;
dass du weisst, was der Wind dir will,
eh noch die Birken beben.

Und wenn dir einmal das Schweigen sprach,
lass deine Sinne besiegen.
Jedem Hauche gieb dich, gieb nach,
er wird dich lieben und wiegen.

Und dann meine Seele sei weit, sei weit,
dass dir das Leben gelinge,
breite dich wie ein Feierkleid
über die sinnenden Dinge.
