Die Bilder des Lebens schwanken,
Die Berge wechseln ihr Kleid,
Du kommst mir nicht aus den Gedanken,
Du dunkelbraunlockige Maid!

Meine Augen haben die deinen,
Deine die meinen gesucht,
Heimlich wie unter Steinen
Ein blaues Vergißmeinnicht lugt.

Und als ich fuhr von hinnen,
Hab' ich mich umgesehn,
Dein weißes Tuch von Linnen
Ließest du flatternd wehn.

Die Sonne war bald verschwunden,
Und nieder sank die Nacht;
Hast du in ruhigen Stunden
Noch einmal an mich gedacht?
