A beautiful Romance by Parish Alvars, defined by Berlioz as The Liszt of the Harp inspired by this poem by August Ferdinand Alexander Schnezler. DREAM AT THE BROOK A Tale from Mummel Lake in the Black Forest In Mummel Lake, in the dark lake There bloom many lilies, They sway, they bend, Playing with the blowing wind; Yet when night falls, The full moon blinks in the heavens, They climb out of the bath As Nymphs on to the shore. The wind howls, the reeds sing The melody to the dance, The lily-maidens twine themselves As if into a garland; And float silently around in a circle, Faces white, robes white, Until their pale cheeks Are delicately flushed. The storm howls, the reeds sing The pine forest whistles The clouds pull past the moon, The shadows on the hill-side, And up and down, through the wet grass Turns the boundless roundelay, And ever louder beat The waves against the shore. Then an arm rises up out of the flood, The gigantic fist clenched, Then a dripping head, crowned with reed, Framed by a long, undulating beard, And a thunderous voice sounds, That it echos from the mountains: "Back in your waves, You ill-mannered lilies!" The dance falters, the maidens cry out And become more and more pale: "Father calls! Puh! Morning air! Back in the water!" The mists rise from the valley, Day is already breaking, And the lilies are again swaying To and fro in the water.
