Eine blasse Wäscherin

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

Eine blasse Wäscherin
Wäscht zur Nachtzeit bleiche Tücher;
Nackte, silberweiße Arme
Streckt sie nieder in die Flut.

Durch die Lichtung schleichen Winde,
Leis bewegen sie den Strom.
Eine blasse Wäscherin
Wäscht zur Nachtzeit bleiche Tücher.

Und die sanfte Magd des Himmels,
Von den Zweigen zart umschmeichelt,
Breitet auf die dunklen Wiesen
ihre lichtgewobnen Linnen -
Eine blasse Wäscherin.

Den bleike vaskarjenta

Language: Norwegian (Nynorsk) after the German (Deutsch)

Den bleike vaskarjenta
vaskar kvite tørkle om natta.
Strekkjer sine nakne
sølvkvite armar ned i flaumen.

Gjennom lysninga luskar vinden;
krusar vatnet med sitt spel.
Den bleike vaskarjenta
vaskar kvite tørkle om natta.

Den yndefulle jenta frå himmelen,
som greinene så ømt rører ved,
breier over dunkle heiar
sitt linkle vevd av lys --
den bleike vaskarjenta.
