Jetzt wird mein Elend voll, und namenlos
erfüllt es mich. Ich starre wie des Steins
Inneres starrt.
Hart wie ich bin, weiß ich nur Eins:
Du wurdest groß -
... und wurdest groß,
um als zu großer Schmerz
ganz über meines Herzens Fassung
Jetzt liegst du quer durch meinen [Schooß,
jetzt kann]1 ich dich nicht mehr
