Dämmernd liegt der Sommerabend

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dämmernd liegt der Sommerabend
Über Wald und grünen Wiesen;
Goldner Mond, [am]1 blauen Himmel,
Strahlt herunter, duftig labend.

An dem Bache zirpt die Grille,
Und es regt sich in dem Wasser,
Und der Wandrer hört ein Plätschern,
Und ein Athmen in der Stille.

Dorten, an dem Bach alleine,
Badet sich die schöne Elfe;
Arm und Nacken, weiß und lieblich,
Schimmern in dem Mondenscheine.

Un réseau d'ombres emprisonne

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

Un réseau d'ombres emprisonne
Les prés, les champs et la forêt;
L'azur pâlit, le vent frissonne,
La lune à l'orient paraît.

Un grillon de sa chanson vive
Lutine le ruisseau qui dort;
Un clapotement bat la rive;
Un bruit léger de l'onde sort:

C'est un Elfe errant à la brume,
Rasant du pied l'herbe et le jone,
Qui prend son bain au clair de lune,
Et vient de faire le plongeon.
