Du nennst mich armes Mädchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du nennst mich -- armes Mädchen;
Du irrst, ich bin nicht arm.
Entreiss dich, Neugier halber,
Einmal des Schlafes Arm,

Und schau' mein niedres Hüttchen,
Wenn sich die Sonne hold
Am Morgenhimmel hebet:
Sein Dach ist reines Gold!

Komm' Abends, wann die Sonne
Bereits zum Meere sinkt,
Und sieh' mein einzig Fenster,
Wie's von Topasen blinkt!


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE FRE

Tu me qualifies de pauvre fille

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

Tu me qualifies de «pauvre fille» ;
Tu n’y es pas, je ne suis pas  pauvre.
Pour une fois, arrache-toi
aux bras de Morphée, par pure curiosité :

tu verras ma modeste cabane ;
quand le soleil se lève avec grâce
dans le ciel du matin,
son toit n’est qu’or pur !

Viens donc, le soir,
quand le soleil descend sur la mer,
et vois à mon unique fenêtre
comme y scintillent des topazes !
