1. Zuleika [sung text not yet checked]

Nicht mit [Engeln im]1 blauem Himmelszelt,
Nicht mit Rosen [auf]2 duftigem Blumenfeld,
Selbst mit [dem ewigen Sonnenlicht]3,
[Vergleiche]4 ich Zuleikha, mein Mädchen nicht!

Denn der Engel Busen ist [liebesleer]5,
Unter Rosen drohen die Dornen her,
Und die Sonne verhüllt des Nachts ihr Licht,
Sie alle gleichen Zuleikha nicht.

Nichts finden, so weit das Weltall reicht,
Die Blicke, was meiner Zuleikha gleicht!
Schön, dornlos, voll ewigem Liebes-Schein!
Kann sie mit sich selbst nur verglichen sein!
