Das war der Tag der weißen Chrysanthemen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Das war der Tag der weißen Chrysanthemen,
Mir bangte fast vor seiner Pracht...
Und dann, dann kamst du mir die Seele nehmen
Tief in der Nacht.
Mir war so bang, und du kamst lieb und leise,
Ich hatte grad im Traum an dich gedacht.
Du kamst, und leis' wie eine Märchenweise
Erklang die Nacht.

Crowned by a dream

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

That was the day of white chrysanthemums;
I almost trembled before its glory...
And then, then you came to me to take my soul
Deep in the night.
I felt so anxious, and you came so lovingly and gently;
I had just been thinking about you in a dream.
You came, and softly, like a fairy tale, 
the night resounded.
