Original text and translations

English.png English text

There is sweet music here that softer falls
Than petals from blown roses on the grass,
Or night-dews on still waters between walls
Of shadowy granite, in a gleaming pass;
Music that gentlier on the spirit lies,
Than tir'd eyelids upon tir'd eyes;
Music that brings sweet sleep
down from the blissful skies.
Here are cool mosses deep,
And thro' the moss the ivies creep,
And in the stream the long-leaved flowers weep,

German.png German translation

Musik gibt’s hier, so süß, die sanfter fällt
als Rosenblütenblätter auf den Rasen;
als zwischen Granitmauern unter Schatten,
der Nachttau fällt auf unberührtes Wasser.
Musik, die sanfter liegt auf dem Gemüt,
als müde Augenlider auf den Augen;
Musik, aus wonnigen Himmeln süßen Schlaf bringend.
Durch Moose, kühl und tief
allmählich der Efeu hinkriecht
im Bach der Blumen langer Blätter weinen;
vom felsigen Vorsprung hängt schlafend die Mohnblume.
