Im Waldesfrieden

Language: German (Deutsch)

Tiefer, tiefer Waldesfrieden,
Lenzdurchrauschte Einsamkeit,
Wie du meiner Seele Pforten,
Die in Sorgen eng geworden,
Oeffnest nun so weit, so weit.

Sehnend suche ich im Laube
Deiner Schritte sanfte Spur,
Möchte, aus mir selbst entlassen,
Deine lieben Hände fassen,
Sonnig lächelnde Natur.

Dans la paix de la forêt

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

Profonde, profonde paix de la forêt,
Solitude parcourue par les bruits du printemps.
Comme tu ouvres si grandes, si grandes
Les portes de mon âme
Qui s'étaient étroitement resserrées.

Languissante je cherche dans les frondaisons
La délicate trace de tes pas,
Je voudrais, libérée de moi-même
Saisir ta chère main,
Nature riante et ensoleillée.
