Liederkreis, Opus 39, is a song cycle composed by Robert Schumann. Its poetry was taken from Joseph Eichendorff's collection called Intermezzo. Schumann wrote two cycles of this name — the other being his Opus 24, to texts by Heine — so this work is also known as the Eichendorff Liederkreis. It is one of the great song cycles of the 19th century. Schumann wrote it starting in May 1840,[1] the year in which he wrote so many lieder that it is known as his "year of song" or Liederjahr. The cycle comprises twelve songs:
