It is usual for this last strophe to be performed with a fuller tone as if the combination of music and poem has brought about a quiet artistic triumph. That music came first, on this occasion at least, is underlined by the melody having been part of the opening Allegro amabile of the A major Violin Sonata, Op , also composed in the summer of , almost certainly before the song.
The word-melodies that Groth had heard, the musical threads that set his brain aglow with poetic inspiration, are surely metaphors for long-cherished memories. Brahms accordingly composes music that seems rich with autumnal nostalgia and gentle regret in the major key. The day was heavy with storms and rains, On each grave froze the word: Deceased. How the coffins slumbered, dead to the storm— Silent dew on each grave proclaimed: Released.
The day was passing storm-tossed, rain-heavy. On every grave, frozen, the word: Deceased. As if at the eye of the storm, the coffins slumbered. On every grave, thawing gently, the word: Recovered. Ans Fenster klopfe leise an, Mein Schatz ist in der Ferne. Und als erschien der lichte Tag, Was fand er auf der Heide? Leave your cuddling and kissing, my dear, and you, you handsome man in velvet, make haste, you cunning thief, a man awaits you on the moor. The moon shines bright, the green turf is fit for our encounter, you wear a sword and nod so boldly, I shall bless your liaison!
And when the light of dawn appeared, what did it find on the moor?
Fünf Lieder, Op. 105 (Brahms)
Von ewiger Liebe is no mere piece of atmosphere, it tells a dramatic story, even if it is nowhere near as bloodthirsty as Verrat where the plot unfolds with admirable concision—it is a maxim of great balladry that there should be few wasted words. The accompaniment, right-hand quavers alternating with striding crotchet basses, seems to paw the ground, impatient for some shocking discovery.
The beauties of the locale are described without fuss—they neither help nor hinder this tense vigil.

Brahms allows the singer an entire verse, twelve bars, where the voice of the faithless and sexually rapacious girl is piped in merciless parody—and yet the singer cannot allow these words to be funny. The observer cannot be anywhere near enough to be hearing these intimate exchanges between the clandestine lovers, but this is after all a ballad. The final twist in the story is that although someone lies dead, and the girl will be grief-stricken to find his body in the morning, we are not entirely certain which of the two rivals has been slain, and who has fled the scene.
The lieder are habitually his confessional, but it is rare to be given a window such as this into his more violent emotions, his anger and his jealousy—both of which must have played a significant part in his mostly unfulfilled private life; he was, after all, a man of great passions. It is significant that Brahms has selected a poem where the betrayed man wreaks revenge on his male rival, but makes no attempt to upbraid, much less harm, the female who has badly let him down.
By inference, and in the context of this story, it is possible that he imagines paying with his own life. Ans Fenster klopfe leise an, Mein Schatz ist in der Ferne! Sweet man, I love you so dear. Tap on my window gently. My beloved is far from here. Stop your hugging and kissing, my darling. And when the light of day arrived, What did they find on the heath? A dead man lying among the flowers.
A false lady stricken with grief. Update Required To play the media you will need to either update your browser to a recent version or update your Flash plugin.
