O singt nur, ihr Schwestern, mit...

Language: German (Deutsch)

O singt nur, ihr Schwestern, mit fröhlichem Mund
Und führet den Reigen im Lindengrund
Mit den Burschen bei Zithern und Geigen! -
Mich aber laßt gehn und schweigen!

Was blickt ihr mir nach, und was wollt ihr von mir?
Ich habe die Freude getragen wie ihr
In der Brust mit Lachen und Scherzen -
Nun trag' ich den Tod im Herzen.

Durch alle Wipfel der Lenzhauch geht,
Ich bin der Baum, der laublos steht;
Die Wasser rieseln so helle,
Ich bin die vertrocknete Quelle.

Die Treue, die Treue, darauf ich gebaut,
Sie ist mit dem Schnee vor der Sonne zertaut;
Wie Spreu vor dem Winde, so stiebet
Meine Liebe, die ich geliebet.

Ô vous mes sœurs, chantez d'une bouche...

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

Ô vous mes sœurs, chantez d'une bouche joyeuse
Et menez la ronde sur l'aire aux tilleuls
Avec les garçons à la cithare et au violon,
Mais laissez-moi aller en silence !

Que me suivez-vous du regard et que voulez-vous de moi ?
Comme vous j'ai porté la joie en mon sein,
Avec des rires et des badineries ;
Maintenant j'ai la mort au cœur.

Le souffle du printemps passe par toutes les cimes,
Je suis l'arbre qui se dresse sans feuille ;
Les eaux coulent claires,
Je suis la source tarie.

La fidélité, la fidélité, j'ai compté avec,
Elle a fondu comme la neige au soleil ;
Comme la plume au vent, ainsi vole
Mon amour, que j'ai aimé.
