The lyrics are by the composer himself, though they are influenced by Des Knaben Wunderhorna collection of German folk poetry that was one Wenn Dein Mütterlein - Gustav Mahler - Lieder Eines Fahrenden Gesellen - Rückert-Lieder - Kindertote Mahler's favorite books, and the first song is actually based on the Wunderhorn poem " Wann [sic] mein Schatz ".
There are strong connections between this work and Mahler's First Symphonywith the main theme of the second song being the main theme of the 1st Movement and the final verse of the 4th song reappearing in the 3rd Movement as a contemplative interruption of the funeral march. The first movement is entitled "Wenn mein Schatz Hochzeit macht" "When My Sweetheart is Married" and the text discusses the Wayfarer's grief at losing his love to another.
He remarks on the beauty of the surrounding world, but how that cannot keep him from having sad dreams. The orchestral texture is bittersweet, using double reed instruments, clarinets and strings. It begins in D minor and ends in G minor.
Verdorre nicht! Singet nicht! Lenz ist ja vorbei! Alles Singen ist nun aus! Des Abends, wenn ich schlafen geh', Denk' ich an mein Leide! An BW-Moerder - Neurotic Arseholes - . Bis Zum Bitteren Ende Leide!
Indeed, it is a song of joy and wonder at the beauty of nature in simple actions like birdsong and dew on the grass. However, the Wayfarer is reminded at the end that despite this beauty, his happiness will not blossom anymore now that his love is gone. This movement is orchestrated delicately, making use of high strings and flutes, as well as a fair amount Passage Denied - Oracle (18) - Selah triangle.

The music is intense and driving, fitting to the agonized nature of the Wayfarer's obsession. It begins in D minor and ends in E-flat minor. Das schneid't so tief in jede Freud' und jede Lust. O weh!
Wenn ich den Himmel seh', Seh' ich zwei blaue Augen Le Pays Des Amours Oubliées - Hélène - Hélène The final movement culminates in a resolution.
The music, also reused in the First Symphony in the slow movementis subdued and gentle, lyrical and often reminiscent of a chorale in its harmonies. Its title, "Die zwei blauen Augen von meinem Schatz" "The Two Blue Eyes of my Beloved"deals with how the image of those eyes has caused the Wayfarer so much grief that he can no longer stand to be in the environment. He describes lying down under a linden tree, finding rest for the first time and allowing the flowers to fall on him; and somehow beyond his own comprehension everything was Wenn Dein Mütterlein - Gustav Mahler - Lieder Eines Fahrenden Gesellen - Rückert-Lieder - Kindertote again: "Everything: love and grief, and world, and dream!
