Sonntag (1898) Op. 7


Von Melodien,
Die mich umflieh'n,
Bin ich im Raum umringt,
Bin ich im Traum beschwingt.
All mein Gehn ist heut
Ein seliges Schreiten;
Kein Ton, der mich reut,
Ist in meinen Saiten.


With melodies
Whirring around me
I am surrounded,
And soar on wings of dreams.
Wherever I go today
I walk in bliss;
I regret no note
That sounds from my strings.
