In des Sees Wogenspiele
Fallen durch den Sonnenschein
Sterne, ach, gar viele, viele,
Flammend leuchtend stets hinein.
Wenn der Mensch zum See geworden,
In der Seele Wogenspiele
Fallen aus des Himmels Pforten
Sterne, ach, gar viele, viele.

On the lake
Language: English after the German (Deutsch)
In the play of the lake's billows,
falling through the sunshine,
Stars — ah, so many, many —
extinguish themselves without cease.
If man became a lake, then,
in the play of the soul’s billows
Would fall through Heaven’s portals
the stars — ah, so many, many stars.
