Das Glück

Language: German (Deutsch)

Das Glück in Händen fragend
Stand er, ob er glücklich sei.
Da ging ein lieber Mensch vorbei.
Dem gab das Glück er in die Hand
Und ward der Frage frei.

Happiness

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Holding happiness in his hands
He stood asking if he were happy.
A kind person passed by.
Into [this person's] hands he pressed the happiness [he held]
And thus was free of the question.
