Pierrot Dandy

Language: French (Français)

D'un rayon de lune fantasque
Luisent les flacons de cristal
Sur le lavabo de santal
Du pâle dandy bergamasque.

La fontaine rit dans sa vasque
Avec un son clair de métal.
D'un rayon de Lune fantasque
Luisent les flacons de cristal.

Mais le seigneur à blanche basque,
Laissant le rouge végétal
Et le fard vert oriental
Maquille étrangement son masque
D'un rayon de Lune fantasque.

Der Dandy

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

Mit einem phantastischen Lichtstrahl
Erleuchtet der Mond die krystallnen Flacons
Auf dem schwarzen, hochheiligen Waschtisch
Des schweigenden Dandys von Bergamo.

In tönender, bronzener Schale
Lacht hell die Fontaine, metallischen Klangs.
Mit einem phantastischen Lichtstrahl
Erleuchtet der Mond die krystallnen Flacons.

Pierrot mit dem wächsernen Antlitz
Steht sinnend und denkt: wie er heute sich schminkt?
Fort schiebt er das Rot und das Orients Grün
Und bemalt sein Gesicht in erhabenem Stil
Mit einem phantastischen Mondstrahl.
