Wir wandelten
We were walking


We were walking, we two together,
I was so quiet and you were so quiet;
I’d give a lot to know
What you were thinking at the time.

What I was thinking, that shall remain unspoken!
I’ll just say one thing, just one thing:
Everything that I was thinking was so beautiful,
So sublimely happy.

In my head the thoughts
Were ringing like golden bells.
So wonderfully sweet, so lovely is
No other sound in the whole wide world.
