Der Mondabend ("The moonlit evening") is a poem by Johann Gottfried Kumpf, who published his poetry under the pseudonym Ermin in Carinthia, a periodical he had founded in 1811.

In 1815 Franz Schubert set Der Mondabend for voice and piano. It was first published in 1830 in Vienna, as No. 1 of Op. post. 131. Later the song was known as D 141. The other two songs of Op. 131 were D 148 (for tenor, men’s choir and piano), and 23 (for voice and piano). The only other poem by Kumpf that was set by Schubert was Mein Gruß an den Mai, D 305.

Der Mondabend, WAB deest, is a setting Anton Bruckner composed for Aloisia Bogner c. 1850. Bruckner's setting has been retrieved in the Landesmuseum of Upper Austria, and was issued for the first time in 2015.
