Wir lassen nie vom Suchen ab, / We shall not cease from exploration
und doch, am Ende allen unsren Suchens, / And the end of all our exploring
sind wir am Ausgangspunkt zurück / Will be to arrive where we started
und werden diesen Ort zum ersten Mal erfassen. / And know the place for the first time.
