    Name of a short story.

    I'm almost positive it was Hesse who wrote it. The story is about a nave little boy who leaves his rural home. He sings songs about love and the land and animals around him. He meets a girl along the way and experiences his first pang of heartache when she refuses to go along with him. With a few more instances of unhappiness he realizes life isn't exactly what he thought it was. It ends with him climbing aboard a river boat and sailing off into the night with it's respective captain. Not the best paraphrasing, but I'm short on time. Any help?
