Over all the mountaintops is peace. In all treetops you perceive scarcely a breath. The little birds in the forest are silent. Wait then; soon, you too, will have peace.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Over the Mountain Tops is Peace

    Uff. What a lousy translation!
    I humbly offer mine : )

    Over all peaks
    Reigns calm,
    In all treetops
    Senseth thou
    Barely a breath.
    The birdies keep silent in the wood.
    Simply wait, soon
    Resteth thou, too.

    The peace of the night.

    Whichever translation, it’s all beautiful, Cherry. What a thought!
