Milde, laue Lenzesnacht,   
Silberblau taghelle,  
Wie in deiner lichten Pracht
Blitzt des Waldes Quelle! 

Am Geriesel, im Gezweig
Flöten Nachtigallen,
Sehnsuchtsüß und liebeweich
Ihre Lieder hallen. 

Jeder Wipfel grüßt und nickt
In der Lüfte Tanze,
Venus sanft vom Himmel blickt
Hell herab im Glanze.

Confirmed with Urania. Musik-Zeitschrift für Alle, achtundzwanzigster Jahrgang, Erfurt: Verlag der Körner'schen Buchhandlung , 1871. Appears in issue no. 5 for that year, page 66.
