In the shade of spring I found her
then with garlands of roses bound her;
she did not feel it and slumbered on.
I looked at her: my life hung
upon her life with this glance;
I truly felt it, and knew it not.
But speechlessly I whispered to her
and rustled with the rose garlands;
then she woke from slumber.
She looked at me; her life hung
upon my life with this one glance
and around us rose Elysium.
