Flickan gick en vintermorgon

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Flickan gick en vintermorgon
I den rimbeströdda lunden,
Såg en vissnad ros och talte:
"Sörj ej, sörj ej arma blomma,
Att din sköna tid förflutit!
Du har levat, du har njutit,
Du har ägt din vår och glädja,
Innan vinterns köld dig nådde.
Värre öde har mitt hjärta,
Har på en gång vår och vinter:
Gossens öga är dess vårdag
Och min moders ärdess vinter.
"Sorj ej, arma blomma,
att din sköna tid förflutit!"

Les saisons de la fille

Language: French (Français) after the Swedish (Svenska)

Par un matin d'hiver une fille allait
Dans le bois couvert de givre,
Voyant une rose flétrie, elle dit :
« Pauvre fleur, ne pleure pas, ne pleure pas
La fuite du temps de ta beauté !
Tu as vécu, tu as pris du plaisir,
Tu as eu ton printemps et du plaisir,
Avant que le froid de l'hiver ne te touche.
Mon cœur a eu un plus cruel destin,
Il a connu à la fois le printemps et l'hiver :
Les yeux de mon amoureux en sont le printemps
Et ceux de ma mère en sont l'hiver,
Pauvre fleur, ne pleure pas
La fuite du temps de ta beauté ! »
