Dämmernd liegt der Sommerabend

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dämmernd liegt der Sommerabend
Über Wald und grünen Wiesen;
Goldner Mond, [am]1 blauen Himmel,
Strahlt herunter, duftig labend.

An dem Bache zirpt die Grille,
Und es regt sich in dem Wasser,
Und der Wandrer hört ein Plätschern,
Und ein Athmen in der Stille.

Dorten, an dem Bach alleine,
Badet sich die schöne Elfe;
Arm und Nacken, weiß und lieblich,
Schimmern in dem Mondenscheine.

At twilight the summer evening lies

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

At twilight the summer evening lies
Over green fields and forest;
Golden moon in the blue sky
Shines down, hazy, fragrantly refreshing.

By the brook chirps the cricket,
And the waters are stirring,
And the wanderer hears a ripple
And a breathing in the stillness.

Yonder, alone, by the brook,
The beautiful mermaid is bathing;
Arm and neck, white and lovely,
Shimmer in the moonlight.
