Sie halten den Abend der Stuben nicht aus.
Sie schleichen in tiefe Sternstraßen hinaus.

Wie weich ist die Welt im Laternenwind!
Wie seltsam summend das Leben zerrinnt . . .
Sie laufen an Gärten und Häusern vorbei,
Als ob ganz fern ein Leuchten sei,
Und sehen jeden lüsternen Mann
Wie einen süßen Herrn Heiland an
