Seltsam schöne Hügelfluchten,
Dunkle Berge, helle Matten,
Rote Felsen, braune Schluchten,
Überflort von Tannenschatten!

Wenn darüber eines Turmes
Frommes Läuten mit dem Rauschen
Sich vermischt des Tannensturmes,
Kann ich lange Stunden lauschen.

Dann ergreift wie eine Sage,
Nächtlich am Kamin gelesen,
Das Gedächnis mich der Tage,
Da ich hier zu Haus gewesen.

Da die Fernen edler, weicher,
Da die tannenforstbekränzten
Berge seliger und reicher
Mir im Knabenauge glänzen.
