Is it a dream?
Was it not just a dream that I embraced you, And kissed your dainty hands and your cheeks And kissed your tempting lips
Until the universes would dissolve in a sea of bliss?
Was my entire happiness not just a dream?
That the new offshoots of our love blossomed again, That your heart was beating on my chest, Just as my heart always dreamt about?
Ah, it was such a soft day without shadows,
And in my thoughts, I am still embracing you,
And I am again kissing you ardently,
Although everything has passed now with merciless time.
And so, one more time I’ve felt the happiness
And the bliss that one love can bring to another, Once again, I’ve relived that day of times gone by: The most beautiful day of my life.
Wasn’t it just a dream that I was embracing you? Was it not a dream?
It’s evening: fog pours from the woods,
The sunset glances through the trees,
I bring you a poise of dew-covered heather. Each small chalice is shining As though embroidered with rubies:
I bring you in these tiniest of flowers,
The greatest depths of my love.
