Space! Space! break paths, wild bosom!
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Space! Space! break paths, wild bosom!
I feel it and marvel every evening,
that not only one sun laughs;
life itself is the joy of life!
Plunge in, plunge in with blind hands,
you have never yet known the goal;
ten thousand stars everywhere
there stand ten thousand suns and pour forth
their beams into our breast!
