Entlang die dürre Hecke, die Blüten einst geregnet,
Geh' ich allein, wo er mir so manches Mal begegnet.
Mein Herz fängt an zu klopfen, wie sonst, wenn ich ihn sah,
Und weiß doch, niemand, niemand nun wartet meiner da.
Sieh, schwarz verhüllt im Mantel nach meines Liebsten Art,
Lehnt einer an den Zweigen und späht hinaus und harrt.
Er winkt mir. Blätter tanzen im Nebel um ihn her.
Es ist der Tod. Ich komme -- Umarmst du so wie er?
