Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA
Ätherische ferne Stimmen,
Der Lerchen himmlische Grüße,
Wie regt ihr mir so süße
Die Brust, ihr lieblichen Stimmen!

Ich schließe leis mein Auge,
Da ziehn Erinnerungen
In sanften Dämmerungen
Durchweht vom Frühlingshauche.

The larks' song
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Ethereal, distant voices,
The heavenly greetings of the larks:
How sweetly you move
My heart, you lovely voices!

I close my eyes gently;
There pass memories
Of soft twilights,
Pervaded with the breath of Spring.
