Paradise - Poem by Friedrich Rückert

-->

In paradise there must flow
A river of eternal love!
And every tear of longing
Must be a pearl within it.

In paradise there must blow
A zephyr that stills pain!
And every sorrow, and yours too,
Must dissolve and disappear in it!

There stands the cool tree of peace
Planted in green spaces,
And under [that tree] it must be possible to dream
A quiet dream of peace and happiness.
