Remembrance (German translation)

English

Remembrance

'Tis done!—I saw it in my dreams:
No more with Hope the future beams;
My days of happiness are few:
Chill'd by Misfortune's wintry blast,
My dawn of Life is overcast;
Love, Hope, and Joy, alike adieu!
Would I could add Remembrance too!

Erinnerung

Ich hört’s im Traum: “ ’s ist aus mit dir!“
Nicht länger leuchtet Hoffnung mir;
die Tage meines Glücks gezählt:
Von Unglücks eis’ger Hand regiert
mein junges Leben jäh erfriert;
Freud’, Liebe, Hoffnung aus der Welt!
Hätt’ gern Erinn’rung zugesellt!
 
Thanks!
