Ach, welch ein Schmerz! -- den Liebling zu entbehren. 
O blutend Herz! Was kann dir Trost gewähren! 
Ihn sucht der Blick; kommt arm zurück. 
Ach, Quell der Thränen -- vergeblich Sehnen.  

Eilt, Seufzer, hin.  Ich darf nicht mit euch eilen; 
Mit trübem Sinn muß in der Ferne weilen. 
In stillem Harm, so arm, so arm! 
Ach! Quell der Thränen  --  vergeblich Sehnen.
