Weise                                                                 Wise

 

Ist es weise                                                                     Is it wise
sich aus dem Streit der Welt zu halten                           to ignore the quarrel in the world
und die kurze Zeit                                                           to live a short time
ohne Furcht zu verbringen?                                           without fear?

Ist es weise                                                                     Is it wise
nur dorthin den Blick zu lenken                                       only to look
wo dunkle Tannen rauschen                                           at rustling firtrees
und bunte Vögel singen?                                                where colorful birds are singing?

Ist es weise                                                                     Is it wise
des Wortes Gewalt zu verleugnen,                                 to deny the power of words
die Waffen nieder zu legen?                                           to lay the weapons down?

Ist es nicht vielmehr weise                                              Or was it realy wise
in der kurzen Zeit                                                            to live the short time
mit der Furcht zu leben?                                                 in fear?
