Schöne Fremde

Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE FRE HEB ITA NOR POR SPA
Es rauschen die Wipfel und schauern,
Als machten zu dieser Stund
Um die halbversunkenen Mauern
Die alten Götter die Rund.

Hier hinter den Myrtenbäumen
In heimlich dämmernder Pracht,
Was sprichst du wirr wie in Träumen
Zu mir, phantastische Nacht?

Es funkeln auf mich alle Sterne
Mit glühendem Liebesblick,
Es redet trunken die Ferne
Wie vom künftigem, großem Glück.

נכר יפה
Language: Hebrew (עברית)  after the German (Deutsch) 
מרשרשות ורועדות צמרות העצים, כאילו שבעצם אותה שעה לאורך החומות השקועות למחצה, סובבים האלים העתיקים. וכאן מאחורי שיחי ההדס, בהדרם הנסתר של דיםדומים, מה אתה שח, מבולבל כבחלום, אלי, לילה מקסים. הכוכבים כולם נוצצים עלי במבט אהבה בוער. שיכורי מרחב דוברים אלי כאילו על אושר גדול בעתיד לבוא.
