Wie wird mir doch das Herz so weit,
Irr' ich in diese Herrlichkeit...
In's bunte Lenzesprangen?
Doch wie es schwirrt und wie es klingt,
Wie ist's dass Eins nur zu mir dringt,
Ein sehnendes Verlangen?

Und Alles wirrt und Alles schwirrt,
Wie tief im Wald der Wand'rer irrt...
Es läutet wie zum Feste.
Doch mitten in dem Frühlingsdrang
Sitzt einsam brütend Tagelang,
Ein Vöglein auf dem Neste.
