O byl to krásny zlaty sen (1865) Op. 2 B124

O byl to krásny zlaty sen

Ó byl to krásný, zlatý sen,
jejž spolu jsme tam snili!
Ach, škoda, že tak krátký jen,
byl sen ten přespanilý.
Tak sladká touha v bytosti
se celé uhostila
a při loučení žalosti
se slza dostavila.
A často chodím na horu
a za tebou se dívám,
však po dalekém obzoru
jen žal svůj rozesílám!

Oh, it was a lovely, golden dream

Oh, it was a lovely, golden dream
that we dreamed there together!
What a shame, that gracious dream
was only so short!
Such sweet longing took root
in my whole being,
until upon parting
a tear of woe arrived.
And often I go up the mountain
and look for you,
but all along the far horizon
only my woe do I sow.
