DIE GEDANKEN SIND FREI
My thoughts they are free as night time's quick shadows.
Their flight none can see, there form not one soul knows.
They fear not the arrow, no hunter can harrow,
I'll sing it merrily; my thoughts they are free!
I think as I will, what e'er gives me pleasure.
So quiet, so still, my thoughts none can measure.
My thoughts you can't tether, not all men together,
I'll sing it thankfully; my thoughts they are free!
What then if my foes my body imprison?
Don't let them suppose how short is their vision.
Walls are but a token, by thoughts quickly broken,
I'll sing defiantly; my thoughts they are free!
So I will disdain all worry and fretting.
No thoughts entertain of sorrow's begetting.
At heart I will smile, then, be merry the while, then,
And sing it joyously; my thoughts they are free!
