Der Herbstwind rüttelt die Bäume

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Herbstwind rüttelt die Bäume,
Die Nacht ist feucht und kalt;
Gehüllt im grauen Mantel
Reite ich einsam im Wald.

Und wie ich reite, so reiten
Mir die Gedanken voraus;
Sie tragen mich leicht und luftig
Nach meiner Liebsten Haus.

Die Hunde bellen, die Diener
Erscheinen mit Kerzengeflirr;
Die Wendeltreppe stürm' ich
Hinauf mit Sporengeklirr.

Im leuchtenden Teppichgemache,
Da ist es so duftig und warm,
Da harret meiner die Holde,
Ich fliege in ihren Arm.

Es säuselt der Wind in den Blättern,
Es spricht der Eichenbaum:
Was willst Du, törichter Reiter,
Mit deinem törichten Traum?

De herfstwind rukt aan de bomen

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

De herfstwind rukt aan de bomen,
De nacht is klam en koud;
Gehuld in ‘n grauwe mantel
Rijd ik1 eenzaam, eenzaam door ‘t woud.
 
En als ik dan voortrij, dan rijden
Reeds mijn gedachten vooruit;
Zij voeren mij licht en luchtig
Naar ‘t huis toe van mijn bruid.
 
De honden blaffen, de knechten
Verschijnen met brandende kaars;
De wenteltrap op storm ik
Met rink’lend spoor aan mijn laars.
 
In ‘t schitt’rend boudoir met tapijten,
Daar is het zo geurig en warm,
Daar wacht op mij mijn beminde,
Ik werp mij meteen in haar arm.
 
Gesuizel van wind in de blaad’ren,
Daar spreekt de eikenboom:
“Wat wil je, onwijze ruiter,
Toch met je onwijze droom?”
