1. Das Echo [sung text not yet checked]

Ein Mädchen weint im Waldesgrund,
  Und ruft durch's Dämmerlicht:
"Mein armes Herz, von Liebe wund,
  Genest's auf Erden nickt?" --
Und 's Echo spricht:
  "-- Auf Erden nicht!"

"So hätt' ich denn umsonst gehofft,
  Gelitten und gewagt?
Mein nasses Auge hätt' so oft
  Den Schmerz umsonst geklagt?" -- 
Und 's Echo sagt:
  "-- Umsonst geklagt!"

"Ich hätt' umsonst hinaufgeblickt, 
  Von wo der Trost uns strahlt? 
Und dieses Herz, vom Leid gedrückt, 
  Genest nur wenn es kalt?" 
Und 's Echo schallt:
  "-- Nur wenn es kalt!"

"Wohlan! so klag' ich meinen Schmerz
  Allein der Waldeskluft! 
Und heilt mir nichts das kranke Herz, 
  So heilt's die kühle Gruft!" -- 
Und 's Echo ruft: 
  "-- Die kühle Gruft!"

6. Wanderlied [sung text not yet checked]

Am leuchtenden [Sommermorgen]1
Geh' ich im Garten herum.
Es flüstern und sprechen die Blumen,
[Ich aber, ich wandle stumm.]2

Es flüstern und sprechen die Blumen,
Und [schaun]3 mitleidig mich an:
Sei [unserer]4 Schwester nicht böse,
Du trauriger blasser Mann.
