Kennst du den Platz am Wiesenrain
Unterm Marienbild?
Dort las ich seinen kleinen Brief
Der all mein Glück enthielt.
Ich las ihn wohl an hundertmal
Mit strahlendem Gesicht.
Es zogen schwere Wolken auf,
Mein Auge sah es nicht.
Ich blickte starr und weltentfernt
Auf jedes Liebeswort.
Da trug ein Windstoß jäh und keck,
Das weiße Blättchen fort.
Herr Sturm, du windiger Gesell,
Bist wirklich ein Prophet.
Was in dern kleinen Briefchen stand,
Der Wind hat es verweht!
