    Lyrically captures the ambivalence of standing in the weariness of this life, and contemplating a rest from the striving labours in the company of our loved ones already passed, and in the presence of our loving Father. Beautifully poignant contemplations. (Report) Reply

    Many thanks for making Novalis's poetry available here, in translation. I am grateful to the editors (by whatever title you go by in this etherworld) . Who is the translator? Considerable effort like this deserves glad recognition. (Report) Reply
