schäumende Wogen If you've never seen the sea 
with the waves chasing in play
or foaming angrily in a gale,
and the infinitely wide horizon
that merges with the sky -
If you've never heard the song
sung by the wind and the waves
out of the yearning of the deep 
and the ocean's lost realms,
the song of the sea - 


Im Passat
Segler zwischen Himmel und Erde Then be silent! You have never beheld 
the sublime countenance of the divinity
nor perceived her travail.
For only longing may approach her. 
Yearning and the sea are one!
