O wie selig ward mir!
Im Lande wandl ich,
Wo Hudhud über den Weg läuft.
Des alten Meeres Muscheln
Im Stein sucht ich, die versteinten;
Hudhud lief einher,
Die Krone entfaltend,
Stolzierte, neckischer Art,
über das Tote scherzend
Der Lebendge.
"Hudhud", sagt ich, "fürwahr!
Ein schöner Vogel bist du.
Eile doch, Wiedehopf!
Eile, der Geliebten
Zu verkünden, daß ich ihr
Ewig angehöre.
Hast du doch auch
Zwischen Salomo
Und Sabas Königin
Ehemals den Kuppler gemacht!"
