"Die Stille Lotosblume"
The silent lotus flower rises out of the blue lake.
Her leaves glimmer and sparkle, her blossom is white as snow.
The moon pours all its golden rays from heaven down into her lap.
A white swan circles the flower on the lake, singing so sweetly, so softly.
He gazes upon her and pours himself into his soft, sweet song.
Oh flower, lovely flower, can you understand his song?
