Bevor er in die blaue Flut gesunken,
Träumt noch der Schwan und singet todestrunken;
Die sommermüde Erde im Verblühen
Läßt all ihr Feuer in den Trauben glühen;
Die Sonne, Funken spühend, im Versinken,
Gibt noch einmal der Erde Glut zu trinken,
Bis, Stern auf Stern, die Trunkne zu umfangen,
Die wunderbare Nacht ist aufgegangen.
