3. Augenblicke [sung text not yet checked]

Augenblicke gibt es, zage, 
wo so [grabesstill]1 die Heide,
wo der Wald den [Odem]2 anhält
wie [in unnennbarem]3 Leide,

wo die Wasser klanglos [rauschen,]4
Blumenaugen ängstlich starren,
[und]5 mir ist, als wär [dies Leben
eingeengt]6 in banges Harren,

und als müßt' in diese Stille
nun ein Donnerschlag erklingen
oder tief die Erd' erbeben
oder mir das Herz [zerreißen.]7
