Freundliche Vision

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nicht im Schlafe hab' ich das geträumt,
Hell am Tage sah ich's schön vor mir:
Eine Wiese voller Margeritten;
Tief ein weißes Haus in grünen Büschen;
Götterbilder leuchten aus dem Laube.
Und ich geh' mit Einer, die mich lieb hat,
Ruhigen Gemütes in die Kühle
Dieses weißen Hauses, in den Frieden,
Der voll Schönheit wartet, daß wir kommen.

Heerlijk visioen

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Nee, niet slapend heb ik dit gedroomd,
Bij vol daglicht zag ik ‘t mooi vóór mij,
Een groot weiland stralend vol margrieten;
Diep een helwit huis in groene bosjes;
Godenbeelden scheem’ren in het lover.
En ik loop met iemand die mij liefheeft,
In serene stemming naar de koelte
Van dit witte woonhuis, naar de vrede,
Die vol schoonheid uitziet
Naar ons komen.1
