Goethe, Johann Wolfgang von: The Traveller’s Night Song (Wanderers Nachtlied II. in English)

Portre of Goethe, Johann Wolfgang von

Wanderers Nachtlied II. (German)

Über allen Gipfeln

Ist Ruh,

In allen Wipfeln

Spürest du

Kaum einen Hauch;

Die Vögelein schweigen im Walde

Warte nur, balde

Ruhest du auch!

Source of the quotation

The Traveller’s Night Song (English)

Over all the hill-tops

Is Rest,

In all the tree-tops

You can feel

Scarcely a breath:

The little birds quiet in the leaves.

Wait now, soon you

Too will have peace.
