Golden breiten sich die Felder,
Wogen sacht im Erntedrang,
Und vom Dörfchen übern Berge
Kommt der Vesperglocken-Klang.

Unter deinem Schritte neigen
Sich die Halme in den Grund,
Sehnsucht träumt in deinen Augen,
Und es zuckt um deinen Mund.

Angstvoll fass' ich deine Hände,
Doch dein abgewandter Blick
Kehrt aus seiner lichten Ferne
Zögernd nur zu mir zurück.
