Aus meinen großen Schmerzen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Aus meinen großen Schmerzen
Mach' ich die kleinen Lieder;
Die heben ihr klingend Gefieder
Und flattern nach ihrem Herzen.

Sie fanden den Weg zur Trauten,
Doch kommen sie wieder und klagen,
Und klagen, und wollen nicht sagen,
Was sie im Herzen schauten.

De mes grandes douleurs

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

De mes grandes douleurs
Je fais des petites chansons ;
Elles soulèvent leurs plumes sonores
Et volettent vers son cœur.

Elles ont trouvé le chemin vers mon amie,
Mais à leur retour elles gémissent,
Elles gémissent mais ne veulent pas dire
Ce qu'elles ont vu dans son cœur.
