Wehe dem Fliehenden Welt hinaus ziehenden! - Fremde durchmessenden, Heimath vergessenden, Mutterhaus hassenden, Freunde verlassenden Folget kein Segen, ach! Auf ihren Wegen nach! Herze, das sehnende, Auge, das thränende, Sehnsucht, nie endende, Heimwärts sich wendende! Busen, der wallende, Klage, verhallende, Abendstern, blinkender, Hoffnungslos sinkender! Lüfte, Ihr säuselnden, Wellen sanft kräuselnden, Sonnenstrahl, eilender, Nirgend verweilender: Die mir mit Schmerze, ach! Dies treue Herze brach, - Grüßt von [dem]1 Fliehenden, Welt hinaus ziehenden!

괴롭다 도피는 세상을 등지는! 타향을 떠도는 고향집을 버린 가족마저 잃은 친구도 다 떠난 축복도 없는, 아! 저 혼자 가는 길! 마음은 타는데 두 눈은 젖는데 그리움 솟는데 고향집 생각에! 가슴은 끓는데 한숨 넘치는데 별빛 반짝이다 힘없이 꺼진다! 바람 스친 곳엔 물결이 남는데 쏟아진 햇볕은 머물지도 않네. 괴로움 준 이여! 내 맘 부서졌네. 내 소식 들으련, 세상 등졌다는!
