Feldeinsamkeit

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich ruhe still im hohen grünen Gras
Und sende lange meinen Blick nach oben,
Von Grillen rings umschwirrt ohn Unterlaß,
Von Himmelsbläue wundersam umwoben.

[Und schönen weiße]1 Wolken ziehn dahin
Durchs tiefe Blau, wie schöne stille Träume;
Mir ist, als ob ich längst gestorben bin
Und ziehe selig mit durch ew'ge Räume.

Solitude champetre

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Couché tout seul, dans l'or vivant du blé,
Les yeux au ciel, où mon esprit s'élève,
Je sens, tout doucement, mon coeur troublé,
Se perdre et fondre en l'infini du rêve.

De blancs nuages montent vers le nord,
Striant l'azur où trainent leurs longs voiles;
Depuis longtemps déjà, serais-je mort?
Je crois planer dans l'orbe des étoiles.


From the Brahms score (Universal-Edition No. 2309).
