Middle Ages Spectaculum 2017 – in Rastede

Middle Ages

In the history of Europe, the Middle Ages or Medieval Period lasted from the 5th to the 15th century. It began with the fall of the Western Roman Empire and merged into the Renaissance and the Age of Discovery. The Middle Ages is the middle period of the three traditional divisions of Western history: classical antiquity, the medieval period, and the modern period. The medieval period is itself subdivided into the Early, High, and Late Middle Ages.

Cäsar Flaischlen was born in 1864 in Stuttgart and died in 1920 in a Sanatorium. He was a well-known lyricist and dialect poet at the beginning of the twentieth century. The poem can also be sung according to the melody of the song:

Der Mai ist gekommen…(May has come…)

But first the translation of `Hab Sonne..´

With sunshine in your heart…

With sunshine in your heart,
Whether it storm or snow,
Whether clouds fill the heavens,
The world fill with quarrels …
With sunshine in your heart,
Then come what may:
Light will shine forth
From the darkest of days!

With a song on your lips
And a cheerful tone
If the workaday rush
Should worry you …
With a song on your lips,
Then come what may:
Help will find its way to you
On the loneliest of days!

With a word for others
In anguish and sorrow,
Say to him what left you
In such good cheer:
With a song on your lips,
Never lose courage,
With sunshine in your heart,
All will be fine!
