“Hör’ ich das Pförtchen nicht gehen?
Hat nicht der Riegel geklirrt?
Nein, es war des Windes Wehen,
Der durch die Pappeln schwirrt.”

O enter with me the gates of delight,
The gates of the garden of man’s desire,
Where spirits, touched by heav’nly fire,
Have planted the trees of life.

Shall I find entrance too?
Or must I roam eternity,
To search, sweetheart, for you?”

the gates are open in my house –
do not pass by like a dream.”
