Samotny księżyc

Language: Polish (Polski)

Czasem mnie gniewa księżyc srebrnólicy,
co w noc wiosenną skrada się z za chmur,
by nam miłosne wydrzeć tajemnice!
Lecz gdy pomyślę, że biedny samotnik
w zimnej gwiazd ciszy, tęskne pędząc noce,
nigdy płomieniem nie gorzał miłości!
Tak mi go żal! Tak żal!

La lune solitaire

Language: French (Français) after the Polish (Polski)

Ah! que m'ennuie la lune indiscrète
qui nous épie par une nuit d'été,
Pour nous dérober les mystères d'amour.
Mais lorsque je pense que la solitaire
ne connaît pas le baiser d'amour
dans le calme de ses nuits si froides,
que je la plains alors!
