Day's End/Ende Des Tages

Poem By Ben Gieske

The day is done
and it's been fun.
Down goes the sun
and one by one
my, beloved one,
the stars appear.
Would you were near.

Ende des Tages (Translation of “Day’s End”)

der Tag ist ausgespielt
hat mir viel Spaß gemacht
die Sonne ist jetzt versunken
und einzeln
meine Geliebte
die Sterne erscheinen
wenn du nahe an wäre

Ev’ry morning we glory to see the sun
breakfast the day with its yolk of golden ways
when birds are happiest to sing their songs.
What is new is sure to get our welcome
