English.png English text

Where the gray bushes by the gray sea grow,
Where the gray islands lie,
Naked and bare to all the winds that blow,
Under the dim gray sky.
The very flowers are gray, and dare not show
The blue we know the little harebell by.

German.png German translation

Wo die grauen Büsche an der grauen See ziehen,
wo die grauen Inseln liegen,
nackt und kahl allen wehenden Winden,
unter dem finsteren grauen Himmel,
auch die Blumen sind grau und wagen es nicht,
der kleinen Glockenblume Blau zu zeigen.
