Et Håb

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Jeg kunde juble for alle Vinde
min Glæde ud! Vil man den forstå?
Nei, bedst jeg varsomt den lukker inde
her hos mig selv i mit Hjertes Vrå.

Mit Hjerte brænder, det bæver, banker
i Takten, o, til en Jubelsang!
Mit Hoved gløder af Vårens Tanker.
Hvor vild og lystelig deres Gang.

Foran mit Øre det bruser, sjunger
som Tonerne fra et Englekor.
Med tusind sladrende, søde Tunger,
det røber mig, hvad i Fremtid bor.

Ak! tør jeg tro det! Jeg vil så gjerne.
Hvor Håbet flammer og kaster Skin!
Ud fra det tause, det dunkle Fjerne
en Stjerne stråler - og det er min!

Un espoir

Language: French (Français) after the Danish (Dansk)

Je pourrais crier ma joie à tous les vent
mon bonheur sera-t-il compris ?
Non, il serait plus prudent de l'enfermer
en moi-même, dans un recoin de mon cœur.

Mon cœur est brûlant, il palpite et bat
au rythme d'un chant d'allégresse !
Les pensées du printemps embrasent ma tête.
Comme leur flot est sauvage et joyeux !

Il gronde dans mes oreilles, s'élève
comme le chant d'un chœur d'anges.
De ses mille langues babillardes et douces,
il m'annonce ce qui habite le futur.

Hélas, comment y croire ! Je le voudrais tant !
Là l'espoir flamboie et jette sa lumière !
Au loin, dans le silence et le lointain obscur
une étoile rayonne, et c'est la mienne !
