Magic Moments
The night will fall, the day will rise
Delightful in my wing -
How much I like those magic eyes:
I hear them softly sing...
A falling day, a rising night,
A look to hear and see -
How deep these eyes, their smile so bright:
And how enchanting me...
So whirling night and day and night
In timeless gentle gleaning -
It’s Life that sparked all time and sight:
And Love inflamed its meaning...


Es fällt die Nacht, es steigt der Tag
mit Freude in den Schwingen -
Wie sehr ich diese Augen mag:
ich hör’ sie leise singen ...
Es fällt der Tag, es steigt die Nacht,
ich kann den Blick nun hören -
Wie tief er schaut, wie hell er lacht:
wie kann er mich betören ...
So taumeln Nacht und Tag und Nacht
wie zeitlos sanft dahin -
Das Leben hat die Zeit entfacht:
die Liebe ihren Sinn ...
