Hör du min stilla röst långt bort i skogen, 
rörs du i bitter höst av en klang förtrogen? 
Såg du i ljusan vår glädjen över ängar, 
skalv ej i sena år alla dina strängar?

Vinter och vår gick tyst bort från liv och öden, 
vad du i sommarn kysst väntar ljukt på döden.
Sjung med din stilla ton vad ditt liv kan mista, 
giv åt den djupa ron sångens tröst, den sista.
