Auf Flügeln des Gesanges

Language: German (Deutsch)

Auf Flügeln des Gesanges,
Herzliebchen, trag ich dich fort,
Fort nach den Fluren des Ganges,
Dort weiß ich den schönsten Ort;

Dort liegt ein [rotblühender]1 Garten
Im stillen Mondenschein,
Die Lotosblumen erwarten
Ihr trautes Schwesterlein.

Die Veilchen kichern und kosen,
Und schaun nach den Sternen empor,
Heimlich erzählen die Rosen
Sich duftende Märchen ins Ohr.

Es hüpfen herbei und lauschen
Die frommen, klugen Gazelln,
Und in der Ferne rauschen
Des [heiligen]2 Stromes Well'n.

Dort wollen wir niedersinken
Unter dem Palmenbaum,
Und Liebe und Ruhe trinken,
Und träumen seligen Traum.

Sur l’aile de mes chants je te...

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

Sur l’aile de [mes chants]1 je te transporterai ; 
je te transporterai jusqu’aux rives du Gange ; 
là, je sais un endroit délicieux.

Là fleurit un jardin embaumé 
sous les calmes rayons de la lune ; 
les fleurs du lotus attendent 
leur chère petite sœur.

Les hyacinthes rient et jasent entre elles, 
et clignotent du regard avec les étoiles ; 
les roses se content à l’oreille 
des propos parfumés.

Les timides et bondissantes gazelles 
s’approchent et écoutent, 
et, dans le lointain, bruissent 
les eaux solennelles du fleuve sacré.

Là, nous nous étendrons 
sous les palmiers dont l’ombre nous versera 
des rêves d’une béatitude céleste.
