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 ForestIn Mummel Lake, in the dark lakeThere 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 bathAs Nymphs on to the shore.The wind howls, the reeds singThe melody to the dance,The lily-maidens twine themselvesAs if into a garland;And float silently around in a circle,Faces white, robes white,Until their pale cheeksAre delicately flushed.The storm howls, the reeds singThe pine forest whistlesThe clouds pull past the moon,The shadows on the hill-side,And up and down, through the wet grassTurns the boundless roundelay,And ever louder beatThe 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 outAnd 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.
