Schwüle, schwüle Julinacht --
Südwind küsst die Zweige,
Was dich so stolz und elend macht,
Schweige mein Herz, verschweige!

Über [den]1 See, der stille ruht,
Wehen die Wolkenschatten,
Über die stille schlafende Fluth,
Über die schimmernden Matten.

Hörst du's, wie zur Hochzeitnacht
Flöte tönt und Geige?
Was dich so stolz und elend macht,
Schweige, mein Herz verschweige.
