Welche blühende Natur
Lacht aus Chloen mir entgegen! 
Wie nach einem milden Regen
Eine helle Maienflur. 

Wangen, Stirne, Mund und Blick,
Alles was mein Auge sieht,
Alles lacht und alles blühet
Süßer Liebe süßes Glück; 

Von der Seele schönem Geist, 
Der ihr sanftes Herz erfüllet,
In die schwarzen Augen quillet,
Und auf alles sich ergießt;

Ihre himmlische Gestalt,
Wie ein goldner Schein, umschwebet,
Ihre zarten Glieder hebet,
Und in ihrer Stimme schallt.

Confirmed with Friedrich August Clemens Werthes, Hirtenlieder , Leipzig: in Commission bey Johann Gottfried Müller, 1772, pages 35 - 36.
