Der Himmel blau, die Erde grün 
Nach langen Wintertagen  --  
Du darfst, mein Geist, auch hoffnungskühn 
Die Ätherflügel schlagen.  

So schwinge dich empor, empor 
Als Lerche durch die Lüfte 
Sieh' offen weit des Himmels Thor 
Und überblüht die Grüfte.

Confirmed with Gedichte von Ludwig August Frankl, Leipzig: F. A. Brockhaus, 1840, page 5.
