Im Arm der Liebe schliefen wir selig ein, Am offnen Fenster lauschte der Sommerwind, Und unsrer Atemzüge Frieden Trug er hinaus in die helle Mondnacht. -- Und aus dem Garten tastete zagend sich Ein Rosenduft an unserer Liebe Bett Und gab uns wundervolle Träume, Träume des Rausches -- so reich an Sehnsucht!

In braccio all'amore ci addormentammo beati. Nella finestra aperta indugiava il vento estivo, e trasportava i nostri placidi respiri nella chiara notte di luna. E dal giardino, lieve, un profumo di rose saliva a sfiorare il letto del nostro amore, per regalarci sogni stupendi, sogni di ebbrezza e desiderio colmi.
