Ein gleiches

Über allen Gipfeln ist Ruh,
In allen Wipfeln spürest du kaum einen Hauch;
Die Vögelein schweigen im Walde,
Warte nur, balde ruhest du auch!

  Over All the Peaks

Over all the peaks it is peaceful,
In all the treetops you feel hardly a breath of wind;
The little birds are silent in the forest,
Only wait; soon you will rest as well!

The great German poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) depicts in this poem a magnificent and peaceful image of nature and man. A jewel of poetry!
