Sommer unter kalkgetünchten Bogen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Sommer unter kalkgetünchten Bogen,
Vergilbtes Korn, ein Vogel der ein und aus fliegt
Abend und die dunklen Gerüche des Grüns.
Roter Mensch, aufdämmerndem Weg, wohin?
Über einsamen Hügel, vorbei am knöchernen Haus
Über die Stufen des Walds tanzt das silberne Herz.

Été sous des arches blanchis à la craie

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

Été sous des arches blanchis à la craie,
Blé jauni, un oiseau qui vole ici et là.
Soir et l'obscure odeur de l'herbe.
Homme rouge, sur un chemin crépusculaire , où vas-tu ?
Au-dessus d'une colline solitaire, passé l'ossuaire,
Au-dessus des marches de la forêt danse le cœur argenté.
