Die Mainacht
The Maynight

When the silvery moon beams through the shrubs,
And over the lawn scatters its slumbering light,
And the nightingale sings,
I walk sadly through the woods.
Shrouded by foliage, a pair of doves
Coo their delight to me;
But I turn away seeking darker shadows,
And a lonely tear flows.
When, oh smiling image, that like dawn
Shines upon my soul, when shall I fmd you on earth?
And the lonely tear flows trembling,
Burning down my cheek.
