Wann im letzten Abendstrahl

[Wann]1 im letzten Abendstrahl
Goldne Wolkenberge steigen
Und wie Alpen sich erzeigen,
Frag' ich oft mit Tränen:
Liegt wohl zwischen jenen
Mein ersehntes Ruhetal?

Valley of rest
Language: English after the German (Deutsch)
When in the last beam of evening light,
Golden mountains of clouds are rising
And appearing [to be as large] as the Alps,
In tears I often ask:
Lies somewhere between those [mountains]
My yearned-for valley of rest?
