Die Welt ist so schön und der Himmel so...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Welt ist so schön und der Himmel so blau,
Und die Lüfte die wehen so lind und so lau,
Und die Blumen winken auf blühender Au,
Und funkeln und glitzern im Morgentau,
Und die Menschen jubeln, wohin ich schau, --
Und doch möcht ich im Grabe liegen,
Und mich an mein totes Liebchen schmiegen.

Le monde est si beau et le ciel si bleu

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

Le monde est si beau et le ciel si bleu,
Et les vent soufflent, si doux, si tièdes,
Et les fleurs qui nous saluent depuis le pré fleuri,
Étincellent et brillent dans la rosée du matin,
Et les hommes exultent, où que je regarde,
Pourtant je voudrais être allongé dans la tombe,
Et me serrer contre ma bien-aimée morte.
