Brenner Pass, Switzerland

The Wanderer’s Night Song / Wandrers Nachtlied

Above all the summits
Is stillness,
In all the mountains
You sense
Scarcely a breath;
The birds are silent in the wood.
Simply wait, soon
You shall rest too.


Über allen Gipfeln
Ist Ruh,
In allen Wipfeln
Spürest du
Kaum einen Hauch;
Die Vögel ein schweigen im Walde.
Warte nur, balde
Ruhest du auch.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
