Nach einem Gewitter

Language: German (Deutsch)

Auf den Blumen flimmern Perlen,
Philomelens Klagen fließen;
Muthiger nun dunkle Erlen
In die [blauen]1 Lüfte sprießen.

Und dem Thale, so erblichen,
Kehret holde Röthe wieder,
[Und in duftigen Gerüchen]2
Baden Vögel ihr Gefieder.

Hat die Brust sich ausgewittert,
Seitwärts lehnt der Gott den Bogen -
Und sein golden Antlitz zittert
Reiner auf versöhnten Wogen.

After a thunderstorm

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 On the flowers glisten pearls;
 Philomel's plaintive song flows;
 Bravely now, the dark alders
 Spring up in the purified air.

 And the valley, so faded and pale,
 Gently turns red again;
In the scent of blossoms,
 Birds bathe their wings.

 Once he has finished storming,
 The god leans his bow sideways,
 And his golden countenance trembles
 All the purer on the appeased waves.
