Morgen!

A very special young man sent me the word ‘Morgen’ via BBM and as I do not speak German I Googled it.

How ironic that it resulted in me coming across this exquisite German poem:

Morgen! Written by Richard Strauss

(English edition of the song by John Bernhoff, 1925 Universal-Edition)

Tomorrow!
Tomorrow’s sun will rise in glory beaming,
And in the pathway that my foot shall wander,
We’ll meet, forget the earth, and lost in dreaming,
Let heav’n unite a love that earth no more shall sunder…
And towards that shore, its billows softly flowing,
Our hands entwined, our footsteps slowly wending,
Gaze in each other’s eyes in love’s soft splendour glowing,
Mute with tears of joy and bliss ne’er ending…
