Sidor Belarsky - Mein Ruhe Platz

My Place of Rest


Don't look for me where myrtles green,
you won't find me there, my precious.
Where lives are withering away at machines,
there is my place of rest.
There is my place of rest.

Don't look for me where the birds are singing,
you won't find me there, my precious.
A slave i am where chains are rattling,
there is my place of rest.
There is my place of rest.

Don't look for me where fountains splash,
you won't find me there, my precious.
Where tears are flowing, teeth are gnashing,
there is my place of rest.
There is my place of rest.

And if you love me with a pure love, come to me my precious,
and cheer up my heart, my dull heart,
and lovelify my place of rest.
And lovelify my place of rest.

The key.

This song was a ground-breaking discovery in understanding the relation of myself to others.
I hope it can be an inspiration to you as well.


The sweet wine of love is but a dream
And yet I yearn for more
The pocket of the heart contains the key
That turns the tavern door
More, and more

Come in, I heard a voice from inside
Drink wine; Love divine:
Be blind: to yourself

The drink of love she satisfies
But the thirst he lingers on
When first she drew me to her eyes
The swallows soared in song
"Won't be long 'til she's gone"

Come in, I heard a voice from inside
Drink wine; Love divine:
Be blind: to yourself

She offered me with velvet hands
In movements soft and slow
A chalice cup with emeralds green
And silver-lined with snow
Look below, below

Come in, I heard a voice from inside
Drink wine; pure wine:
Love divine

Come share this cup of wine with me
And leave your cares behind
Go hang your heart upon a tree
And watch the moonbeams, shining in your eyes
In your eyes

Come in, I heard a voice from inside
Drink wine; Love divine:
Be blind: to yourself

Come close, my love
Come into my heart


And being other than a stone, you are not a stone; and being other than gold, you are not gold? Very true.
