Silberhelles Kinderlachen
Dringt zu mir wie Glockenton,
Und in meiner Brust erwachen
Laute, die vergessen schon.

Was ich längst zu Grab getragen,
Steigt nun auf wie Lerchensang:
Aus der Kindheit fernen Tagen
Läutet Osterglockenklang.

Note: this poem is not in Fink und Nachtigall (at least the edition from 1925).
