A Good One by Goethe


Uber allen Gipfeln ist Ruh,
In allen Wipfeln
Spurest du kaum einen Hauch;
Die Voglein schweigen im Walde.
Warte nur,
Balde ruhest du auch.



Over all the peaks there is peace,
In all the tree tops
You feel scarecely a breathe of air;
The little birds in the forest are silent.
Soon you too will be at rest.
