possibly by Carl Ernst Kohlhauer and possibly by Paul Wigand (1786 - 1866)

In der Ferne
Language: German (Deutsch) 
In der Ferne brennt das Feuer 
  Zarter Liebe doppelt rein,
In der Ferne hüllt die Flamme
  Weder Rauch noch Wolke ein.

In der Ferne nährt die Sehnsucht 
  Tag und Nacht den Zauberschein;
In der Ferne brennt das Feuer 
  Zarter Liebe doppelt rein.

Confirmed with Lyrisches Album aus dem Lahngan, herausgegeben von Dr. Paul Wigand, Gießen, J. Ricker'sche Buchhandlung, 1858, page 228. From Bunter Liederkranz von den Genannten. All previous sections indicate a poet's name, and the last section so named was by Paul Wigand, but it could also be a mix of unnamed (but previously named) poets. Fr. Pazdírek's Universal-Handbuch der Musikliteratur aller Völker indicates the poet of this text is "Kohlhauer" and there is a previous section in Lyrisches Album for poetry by Carl Ernst Kohlhauer, but we have not yet found any other poetic source to indicate that this poem should be attributed to him.
