My heart, the bird of the wilderness

Language: English after the Bangla (Bengali)

My heart, the bird of the wilderness,
has found its sky in your eyes:
They are the cradle of the morning,
they are the kingdom of the stars;
My songs are lost in their depths.
Let me but soar in that sky,
in its lonely immensity!
Let me but cleave its clouds
and spread wings in its sunshine.

Mein Herz, der Vogel der Wildnis

Language: German (Deutsch) after the English

Mein Herz, der Vogel der Wildnis,
hat seinen Himmel in deinen Augen gefunden.
Sie sind die Wiege des Morgens,
sie sind das Königreich der Sterne.
Meine Lieder sind verloren in ihre Tiefen.
Laß mich nur auffliegen in diesen Himmel,
in seine einsame Unermesslichkeit.
Laß mich nur seine Wolken teilen 
und die Schwingen breiten in seinem Sonnenschein.
