Homeland Longing – Alberts Graudins (POW)

Sound of sad songs,

Of my distant homeland.

An endless longing gripped me,

oh dear departed days of peace,

Clouds slide quietly,

I rush to thee my greetings.

Slipped hidden behind, my documents to elope this land,

to return to where I felt your love.

Faded night, out go the stars,

Lights go out once happiness is unbraided.

The Goddess drips her reward, or else showers it in dreams,

Beyond mother, what will I become?

Lunden, Krempel.

Krempel is a municipality in the district of Dithmarschen, in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.
