Tiefer sinket schon die Sonne

Language: German (Deutsch)

Tiefer sinket schon die Sonne,
Und es athmet alles Ruhe,
Tages Arbeit ist vollendet,
Und die Kinder scherzen munter.
Grüner glänzt die grüne Erde,
Eh die Sonne ganz versunken;
Milden Balsam hauchen leise
In die Lüfte nun die Blumen,
Der die Seele zart berühret,
Wenn die Sinne selig trunken.
Kleine Vögel, ferne Menschen,
Berge himmelan geschwungen,
Und der große Silberstrom,
Der im Thale schlank gewunden,
Alles scheint dem Dichter redend,
Denn er hat den Sinn gefunden;
Und das All ein einzig Chor,
Manches Lied aus einem Munde.

Evening glow

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 The sun is already sinking deeper,
 and everything breathes peace.
 The day's work is done,
 and the children jest merrily.
 The green earth shines greener
 before the sun has sunk entirely.
 Balmy scents waft gently
 in the air from the flowers,
 tenderly soothing the soul
 whenever the senses drink them blissfully.
 Small birds, far-off people,
 mountains lining the sky, 
 and the great silver stream
 that winds narrowly in the valley -
 everything speaks to the poet
 for he has discovered their meaning:
 and everything is a single choir,
 many songs from one mouth.
