Deinem Fenster vorüber
Oft in der Stille der Nacht
Schleich' ich und blicke hinüber
Heimlich wenn keiner mehr wacht!

Matt noch erhellt ist dein Zimmer,
Aber es reget sich nichts,
Nieder um mich fliesst der Schimmer
Deines einsamen Lichts.

Und blass im goldenen Kreise
Umwebet der Schein mich so kühl,
Seh' es und schleiche mich leise
Vorüber und träume mir viel.
