Über mir im Blauen reisen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Über mir im Blauen reisen
Wolken, die mich heimwärts weisen.

Heimwärts in die namenlose Ferne,
In das Land des Friedens und der Sterne.

Heimat! Soll ich deine blauen
Schönen Ufer niemals schauen?

Dennoch ist mir, hier im Süden müßten
Nah sein und erreichbar deine Küsten.

Dans l'azur au‑dessus de moi courent

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

Dans l'azur au-dessus de moi courent
Des nuages qui m'indiquent
Où est ma patrie, dans un lointain sans nom,
Dans le pays de la paix et des étoiles.

Patrie ! ne dois-je plus jamais
Contempler tes belles rives bleues ?
Pour autant tes côtes doivent être ici dans le sud
Proche de moi et accessibles.
