Einsiedler will ich sein und einsam stehen, 
Nicht klagen, weinen, sondern büßend beten,
Du bitt' für mich dort, daß ich besser werde! 

Nur einmal, schönes Bild, laß dich mir sehen,
Nachts, wenn alle Bilder weit zurücketreten, 
Und nimm mich mit dir von der dunklen Erde.

Confirmed with Gedichte aus dem Nachlasse des Freiherrn Joseph von Eichendorff, herausgegeben von Heinrich Meisner, Leipzig, C. F. Amelangs Verlag, 1888, p. 24.
