Hoch über stillen Höhen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Hoch über stillen Höhen
Stand in dem Wald ein Haus;
So einsam war's zu sehen,
Dort übern Wald hinaus.

Ein Mädchen saß darinnen
Bei stiller Abendzeit,
Tät seidne Fäden spinnen
Zu ihrem Hochzeitskleid.


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE

Reminiscences

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

High above the silent heights
A house stood in the forest;
So lonely was it to behold,
There, over the forest.

A maiden sat there inside
in the silent evening time,
Spinning silk threads
For her wedding-dress.
