Sonne

Language: German (Deutsch)

  Auf grünem Hügel kniet ein großes Volk
in schwarzen Mänteln und zerriss'nen Schuh'n.
Die magern Wangen rötet sanftes Blut.
Und alle Häupter sind entblößt.
Und alle Augen sind geschlossen.
Und alle Hände sind gefaltet.

Sonne. Sonne. Sonne.

Slunce

Language: Czech (Čeština) after the German (Deutsch)

Na táhlé stráni klečí zástup v tmách,
je v cárech každý, rozedrán a bos.
Hle vpadlé tváře krví sotva žhnou.
A všechny hlavy pnou se výš.
A všechny oči hledí v prázdno.
A všechny ruce spiaty pevně.
Slunce! Slunce! Slunce!
