Nur eine einzige Wolke zieht am...

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Chinese (中文)

Nur eine einzige Wolke zieht am Abendhimmel hin;
Nur eine Barke schwimmt im Fluß,- ich bin allein darin.
 
Nun kommt der junge Mond herauf, ein runder Silberschild;
Im Flusse, geisterhaft bewegt, seh ich sein [Spiegelbild]1.
 
Da wird die dunkle Wolke hell und schwebt in süßer Ruh',-
Da fühl' ich weichen allen Schmerz,- o Mond, das tatest du!
