Verbirg dich, Sonne,
Denn die Gluthen der Wonne
Versengen mein Gebein;
Verstummet Töne,
Frühlings Schöne
Flüchte dich, und laß mich allein!

Quillen doch aus allen Falten
Meiner Seele liebliche Gewalten;
Die mich umschlingen,
Himmlisch singen -
Geh' unter Welt, und störe
Nimmer die süßen ätherischen Chöre!

Confirmed with Gedichte von Johann Mayrhofer. Wien. Bey Friedrich Volke. 1824, page 122.

Dissolution
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
 Hide yourself, o sun,
 for the glow of bliss
 burns my entire being.
 Be silent, sounds;
 Spring beauty,
 go away and leave me alone!

 Welling up from every recess
 of my soul are pleasing powers
 that envelop me,
 with heavenly singing.
 End, world, and never disturb
 the sweet, ethereal choir again.
