I. Youth. Autobiography.

Aus Morgenduft gewebt und Sonnenklarheit
Der Dichtung Schleir aus der Hand der Wahrheit.

The million stars which tremble
     O'er the deep mind of dauntless infancy.

Wie leicht ward er dahin getragen,
     Was war dem Glucklichen zu schwer!
Wie tanzte vor des Lebens Wagen
     Die luftige Begleitung her!
Die Liebe mit dem sussen Lohne,
     Das Gluck mit seinem gold'nen Kranz,
Der Ruhm mit seiner Sternenkrone,
     Die Wahrheit in der Sonne Glanz.
