J'ai cueilli ce brin de bruyère
L'automne est morte souviens-t'en
Nous ne nous verrons plus sur terre
Odeur du temps brin de bruyère
Et souviens-toi que je t'attends

Ich habe diesen Erikazweig gepflückt
Der Herbst ist gegangen - gedenke seiner
Wir werden uns auf Erden nie mehr begegnen
Duft der Jahreszeit - Erikazweig
Und denke daran, dass ich deiner harre.
