1.
Hyperion's Song Of Destiny
Holy spirits, you walk up there
in the light, on soft earth.
Shining god-like breezes
...
2.
From In Lovely Blue
Like the stamen inside a flower
The steeple stands in lovely blue
And the day unfolds around its needle;

The flock of swallows that circles the steeple
...
3.
Half Of Life
With its yellow pears
And wild roses everywhere
The shore hangs into the lake,
O gracious swans,
...
4.
Bread And Wine
Round about the city rests. The illuminated streets grow

Quiet, and coaches rush along, adorned with torches.

Men go home to rest, filled with the day's pleasures;

Busy minds weigh up profit and loss contentedly
...
5.
Remembrance
The northeast blows,
my favorite among winds,
since it promises fiery spirit
and a good voyage to mariners.
...
6.

The god
Is near, and hard to grasp.
But where there is danger,
A rescuing element grows as well.

Mnemosyne
The fruits are ripe, dipped in fire,
Cooked and sampled on earth. And there's a law,
That things crawl off in the manner of snakes,

To The Fates

And just one autumn for ripe songs,

That my heart, filled with that sweet

Music, may more willingly die within me.
...

Isn't my heart holy, more full of life's beauty,
since I fell in love? Why did you like me more
when I was prouder and wilder, more full
...
10.
The Journey
Suevia, my mother, happy land!
You also are like your more shining sister
Lombardy over there
Flowed through by a hundred streams
...
