Nun gieb ein Morgenküßchen!
Du hast genug der Ruh;
Und setz dein zierlich Füßchen
Behende in den Schuh!

Nun schüttle von der Stirne
Der Träume blasse Spur!
Das goldene Gestirne
Erleuchtet längst die Flur.

Die Rosen in deinem Garten
Sprangen im Sonnenlicht;
Sie können kaum erwarten,
Daß deine Hand sie bricht.
