Notes

Feldeinsamkeit

Ich ruhe still im grünen Gras
Und sende lange meinen Blick nach oben,
Von Grillen rings unschwirrt ohn Unterlaß,
Von Himmelsbläue wundersam umwoben.
Die schönen weißen Wolken ziehn dahin
Durchs tiefe Blau, wie schöne stille Träume;
Mir ist, als ob iich längst gestorben bin
Und ziehe selig mit durch ew’ge Räume.

Solitude in Summer Fields

Silently I rest in the tall green grass
And look steadily upwards;
Crickets sing ceaselessly about me,
The blue of the sky encompasses me strangely.
The lovely white clouds drift
Through the deep blue like lovely still dreams,
It is as though I had died long ago
And were now drifting with the clouds through eternal space.

Hermann Allmers (1821-1902)
