An Novalis

Language: German (Deutsch)

In dunkler Erde ruht der heilige Fremdling.
Es nahm von sanftem Munde ihm die Klage der Gott,
Da er in seiner Blüte hinsank.
Eine blaue Blume
Fortlebt sein Lied im nächtlichen Haus der Schmerzen.

To Novalis

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

In dark earth the holy stranger rests. 
From his soft mouth the lament was taken by the God,
when he sank in the prime of his life. 
In a blue flower 
his song lives on in the nocturnal house of pain.
