Ich blicke hinab in die Gasse

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich blicke hinab in die Gasse,
Dort drüben hat sie gewohnt;
Das öde, verlassene Fenster,
Wie hell bescheint's der Mond.

Es gibt so viel zu beleuchten;
O holde Strahlen des Lichts,
Was [webt]1 ihr denn gespenstisch
Um jene Stätte des Nichts!


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE POR

In the lane

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

I gaze down the lane:
Over there, she used to live;
That desolate, abandoned window,
How brightly does the moon shine on it!

There is so much to illuminate;
Oh lovely beams of light,
Why do you weave so eerily
About this place of nothingness?
