Friedhof means cemetary in German
But literally translates to Peaceful Court.
Think on that.
And see on one side of the grounds are the regal ghousts,
and they look across to the soilders of the first world war, die erster Weltkrieg, La première guerre mondiale
Who, on christmas, abandoned their trenches,
and played football, Fussball, le football (soccer), and sang together.
Silent Night, stille Nacht, Douce nuit
How Beautiful the thought,
And how dreadful that those peacemakers, were so severly punished.
And think, yes, the order, the strictness of military is crucial for its function.
And think how much Gratitude we should have.
And think of the suffering.
And think of how it can be averted in the future.
See that true lasting peace among the hot-blooded living is impossible,
Yet look upon the hope, that the cooler longer eternity,
We might reposer en paix, Ruhe in Frieden, rest in peace.
