Poem by Friedrich Rückert

Du meine Seele, du mein Herz,
Du meine Wonn', o du mein Schmerz,
Du meine Welt, in der ich lebe,
Mein Himmel du, darein ich schwebe,
O du mein Grab, in das hinab
Ich ewig meinen Kummer gab!
Du bist die Ruh, du bist der Frieden,
Du bist vom Himmel mir beschieden.
Dass du mich liebst, macht mich mir wert,
Dein Blick hat mich vor mir verklärt,
Du hebst mich liebend über mich,
Mein guter Geist, mein bess'res Ich!

You my soul, you my heart,
You my joy, O you my pain,
You my world in which I live,
My heaven you, in which I float,
O you my grave, into which
I cast my grief eternally!
You are repose, you are peace,
You have been granted to me from heaven.
That you love me makes me worthy,
Your gaze transfigures me,
You raise me lovingly above myself--
My good spirit, my better self!
--tr. K. Mitchell
