Komm, Liebchen, komm! Umwinde mir die...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Komm, Liebchen, komm! Umwinde mir die Mütze!
Aus deiner Hand nur ist der Dulbend schön.
Hat Abbas doch, auf Irans höchstem Sitze,
Sein Haupt nicht zierlicher umwinden sehn!

Ein Dulbend war das Band, das Alexandern
In Schleifen schön vom Haupte fiel,
Und allen Folgeherrschern, jenen andern,
Als Königzierde wohlgefiel.

Dulbend ist's, der unsern Kaiser schmücket,
Sie nennen's Krone. Name geht wohl hin!
Juwel und Perle! sei das Aug entzücket:
Der schönste Schmuck ist stets der Muselin.

Und diesen hier, ganz rein und silberstreifig,
Umwinde, Liebchen, um die Stirn umher.
Was ist denn Hoheit? Mir ist sie geläufig!
Du schaust mich an, ich bin so groß als Er.

Viens, ma bien‑aimée, viens

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

Viens, ma bien-aimée, viens ! Attache-moi ce bonnet !
De ta main seul le turban conviendrait.
Même Abbas sur le plus trône d'Iran
N'a jamais eu sa tête aussi délicatement enveloppée !

Un turban était le ruban qui de la tête d'Alexandre
Tombait en boucles,
Et tous ses successeurs, l'un après l'autre,
Étaient ravis de cet ornement royal.

C'est un turban qui pare notre empereur,
Ils l'appellent une couronne. Le nom va bien !
Des joyaux et des perles ! qu'ils ravissent l'œil :
Le plus bel ornement est toujours la mousseline.

Et cette mousseline ici, tout à fait pure et striée d'argent,
Attache-la, ma bien-aimée, autour de mon front.
Alors qu'est-ce que la majesté ? Elle m'est familière !
Quand tu me regardes, je suis aussi grand que lui.
