Der Wandrer, von der Heimat weit
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE ITA
Der Wandrer, von der Heimat weit,
Wenn rings die Gründe schweigen,
Der Schiffer in Meeres Einsamkeit,
Wenn die Stern aus den Fluten steigen:

Die beiden schauern und lesen
In stiller Nacht,
Was sie nicht gedacht,
Da es noch fröhlicher Tag gewesen.
