Schliesse mir die Augen beide Wikipedia
"Schliesse mir die Augen beide" is a poem by Theodor Storm, twice set to music by Alban Berg. Berg composed his first setting in 1907, dedicating it to his future wife. The second version was composed in 1925 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Universal Edition music publisher. This second setting was Berg's first full-fledged 12 tone composition, and he re-used its tone row, or rather its secondary set, in the first movement of the Lyric Suite for string quartet of 1926.
