Seltsam in den Büschen
Zittert's vom fahlen Licht,
Sie stehen alle um mich
Herum mit fragendem Gesicht.
Seh'n still und ernst zum Monde hin.
Der steigt aus der Erd empor,
Steigt wie eines todten Königs Geist
Aus seiner Gruft hervor.
Blickt gross und traurig um sich her!
Da wandert's bleich übers Feld,
Wird alles eine andre,
Wird wieder seine Welt.
