Wanderers Gemütsruhe

Language: German (Deutsch)

Übers Niederträchtige
Niemand sich beklage;
Denn es ist das Mächtige,
Was man dir auch sage.

In dem Schlechten waltet es
Sich zu Hochgewinne,
Und mit Rechtem schaltet es
Ganz nach seinem Sinne.

Wandrer! - Gegen solche Not
Wolltest du dich sträuben?
Wirbelwind und trocknen Kot,
Laß sie drehn und stäuben.

A traveler's serenity

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 About vileness
 no one should complain;
 for it is a power in itself,
 as many may tell you.
 
 In the maladjusted it presides
 with the highest success,
 and with the just, it operates
 entirely as it wishes.
 
 Traveler! against such misery
 will you bristle?
 Whirlwind and dry excrement -
 let them twist and raise the dust.
