Stiller Gang
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE IRI
Der Abend graut, Herbstfeuer brennen.
Über den Stoppeln geht der Rauch entzwei.
Kaum ist mein Weg noch zu erkennen.
Bald kommt die Nacht; ich muß mich trennen.
Ein Käfer surrt an meinem Ohr vorbei.
Vorbei.

Silent walk
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
The evening grows gray, autumn fires burn.
Over the stubble, smoke floats in two columns.
My path is hardly recognizable.
Soon night will come; I must leave.
A beetle flits murmuring past my ear.
Past.
