Feldeinsamkeit

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich ruhe still im hohen grünen Gras
Und sende lange meinen Blick nach oben,
Von Grillen rings umschwirrt ohn Unterlaß,
Von Himmelsbläue wundersam umwoben.

[Und schönen weiße]1 Wolken ziehn dahin
Durchs tiefe Blau, wie schöne stille Träume;
Mir ist, als ob ich längst gestorben bin
Und ziehe selig mit durch ew'ge Räume.

Field Solitude

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

I rest me 'midst the tall, green wavy grass,
And gaze for hours on the deep-blue sky;
The crickets whir around me as they pass,
The domes celestial o'er my fancies lie.

White clouds of beauty rare the scene drift o'er,
Like stilly dreams, obscuring heaven's face;
Meseems that I have died long years before,
And as a tranquil spirit glide through space.
