The last three Lenau songs were composed in July 1879, when Wolf had returned temporarily to his native Silesia, and they represent a definite advance in maturity of expression. The first, Herbstentschluss, is yet another wandering song, but this time the piano part is tempered by its Schubertian texture of tremolando semiquavers, and the musical momentum more surely sustained.

Die letzten drei Lenau-Lieder entstanden im Juli 1879, als Wolf für kurze Zeit in sein heimatliches Schlesien zurückgekehrt war. Sie repräsentieren einen eindeutigen Fortschritt in der Reife seines Ausdrucks. Das erste, Herbstentschluss, ist ein weiteres Wanderlied, jedoch wird der Klavierpart hier durch eine Schubertsche Tremolandotextur mit Sechzehntelnoten gemäßigt, was den musikalischen Schwung erhält.
