      Welcome my beloved mountains,

      Welcome O my river dear!

      I used to be so far away,

      But now again I am so near.

      5

      Crowds of people stood between us,

      And the hubbub of the street;

      And the patience farcical

      That oft in sacrifice we meet.

      Those are all remote domains,

      10

      Wilderness, and sterile waste;

      Ruptured only by the longings

      That my soul to you still haste.

      My grief has brought me back to you,

      So I am standing by your side,

      15

      O mountains, and I'm listening to

      The waters' murmur deep and wide.

      Yes! I am hiking, looking, listening…

      How beautifully is all arranged!

      And I am seeking to find out

      20

      If anything, since then, has changed.

      Nothing, only in a roadside cabin

      A friend of mine has died of age,

      Withered are the willows two

      That used to guard the springtide's stage.

      25

      Upon our olden ash-trees though

      New leaves again have densely grown,

      Yellow buttercups are shining

      Among the greening grass unmown.

      And from the fields I feel now blowing

      30

      Eternity's creative breeze

      That into life transforms all death,

      And puts my thoughts again at ease.

      Welcome my beloved mountains,

      Welcome O my river dear!

      35

      I used to be so far away,

      But now again I am so near.
