Vom Grund bis zu den Gipfeln

Language: German (Deutsch)

[Vom Grund]1 bis zu den Gipfeln,
So weit man sehen kann,
Jetzt blüht's in allen Wipfeln,
Nun geht das Wandern an:

Die Quellen von den Klüften,
Die Ström' auf grünem Plan,
Die Lerchen hoch in Lüften,
[Der Dichter]2 frisch voran.

Und die im Tal verderben
In trüber Sorgen Haft,
[Er möcht sie alle]3 werben
Zu dieser Wanderschaft.

Und von den Bergen nieder
Erschallt sein [Lied]4 ins Tal,
Und die zerstreuten Brüder
[Faßt Heimweh]5 allzumal.

Da wird die Welt so munter
Und nimmt die Reiseschuh,
[Sein]6 Liebchen mittendrunter
[Die nickt ihm]7 heimlich zu.

Und über Felsenwände
Und auf dem grünen Plan
Das wirrt und jauchzt ohn Ende --
Nun geht das Wandern an!

De la vallée jusqu'aux sommets

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

De la vallée jusqu'aux sommets,
Aussi loin que l'on peut voir,
Les cimes de tous les arbres fleurissent,
Alors commence la randonnée.

Les sources des crevasses,
Les fleuves sur la verte plaine,
Les alouettes, haut dans les airs,
Et devant, le poète alerte.

Et ceux qui dépérissent dans la vallée,
Prisonniers de troubles appréhensions,
[Le poète]1 voudrait tous les engager
À se joindre à ce voyage.

Et descendant de la montagne,
Son [chant]2 retentit dans la vallée,
Et ses frères dispersés
[Sont tous saisis du mal du pays]3.

Tout le monde devient alors joyeux,
On prend ses chaussures de marche,
Et au milieu de la foule, sa bien-aimée
[Lui]4 fait un signe à la dérobée.

Et au-dessus des parois rocheuses,
Et sur la verte plaine
On se mêle et se réjouit sans fin –
Alors commence la randonnée !
