Be Still My Heart  ,  Ludwig Sphor  (1784-1859)  I nursed yet a secret hope deep in the breast, that still I would find you true hearted. The lovelight my own eyes so fondly had guessed, was magic your eyes had imparted. But when your soft voice had bewitched me most in a moment of storm all its echoes were lost. Be still my heart, no longer to grieve, That is now the real truth, The rest make—believe. My songs were of flowers and long sunny days to hearten my long toiling brothers; For them I forsookthen my poet’s bays, to toil and to strive with the others, Some thanks of mankind all I hoped to have earned they laughed in derision and my labours they spurned.. Be still my heart, no longer to grieve, That is now the real truth, The rest make—believe. 2.  Two Songs in One The lilac leaves hid some small bird in the silent, moonlit night of May. While she was singing, the bird was mute, and dn she listened to his silvery flute, And while their voices rose and fell, the moonbeams cast their shimmering spell. What thrilled that bird in green retreat through the silent, moonlit night of May? What felt that maiden, serene and sweet through the silent, moonlit night of May? That wild bird thrilled with the bliss of Spring, Of love fulfilled did the maiden sing: How torn was my heart to hear’ their song, I’ll not forget my whole life long.  3.  Longing I look to the heart and I look on the skies, While tire tears gather fast and are burning my eyes; That golden horizon allured me in vain, It called me to heights I could never attain. O my powers so slight arid the distance so great. And the time will not wait, O had I wings soaring into the blue, Could bathe in sunlight in vapourous den, It would still be in vain! Hour after hour would go by. Wasting youth in my tears and my muse running dry! o my talent so slight arid the distance so great, And the time will not wait.  : •:‘  • 4 k  Cradle Song  :L.  One thingall things now must do, fall asleep and so must YOU! Soft spring breezes barely sigh, Hush my darling baby, hush a, hush a bye? Little eyes be closing now like two buds upon a bough. When the sun peeps through the pane, let them open like the flowers once again! Then them I’ll here 5.  I’ll see those flowers of blue smiling, back and kiss too. forget in mother’s bliss, Spring is out of doors when I have this!  The Secret Song There are the secret sorrows which we say no word, of those, so deeply buried the world has never heard. And there’s a secret longing that shuns the searching light: of tears it may have brought to us the stranger has no sight. Sometimes when sinking gently into a world within, we catch a glimpse in starlight of peace we longed to win, where then, with barriers broken, the soul may Heaven rebuild, and thanks will come from lips that hope and Joy again have filled And there’s a still withdrawal in silence or a sigh, when no one has suspicion how deep the wound may lie. No malady confessing, no pain allowed to show, the heart must break in the silence, the stranger not to know, But still there are those slumbers wherein is peace assured, and of its endless heartache the weary soul is cured, and hope is infinite, and it pours from Heaven above The heart that’s living open to it will be filled with love.  6.  Awakening  Why stay so long to bewail the past? Love’s still awake and will always last? Hear how it echoes in all live things with birds fond greetings the forest rings, The buds break stiff from the treebole now and life springs green from twig and bough. Now dance the bubbles in woodland springs, the brook lighthearedly leaps and sings, the sky embraces the ocean rim, their blues commingle in radiance dim; All form and sound, everything alive love sweeps along in an endless drive?  .3
