Mein Traumschloß - Versunken


Part of a series or song cycle:

7 Karst-Lieder


Mein Traumschloß - Versunken

Das ewige Lied vom Scheiden erklingt,
der Pfeil hat sein Ziel nicht getroffen!
Das stolze Phantom des Luftschlosses sinkt
Zur Erde, vergebliches Hoffen!
Die Sonne geht auf, der Luzifer
Sprüht am Himmel in sterbenden Funken,
im seligen Schein zum letzen Mal
glüht mein Traumschloß, nun ist es versunken.

My castle of dreams - Dashed

The eternal song of parting is heard,
The arrow has yet to hit the target!
The proud phantom of the castle in the air
Collapses. All hope is vain!
The sun rises, Lucifer
Bespangles heaven with dying sparks,
In the blissful glow, for one last time,
My castle of dreams glows, and now has vanished.
