Frühling

Language: German (Deutsch)

In dämmrigen Grüften
Träumte ich lang
Von deinen Bäumen und blauen Lüften,
Von deinem Duft und Vogelsang. 

Nun liegst du erschlossen
In Gleiß und Zier,
Von Licht übergossen
Wie ein Wunder vor mir. 

Du kennst mich wieder,
Du [lockest]1 mich zart,
Es zittert durch all meine Glieder
Deine selige Gegenwart.

Printemps

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

Dans les tombes crépusculaires
J'ai longtemps rêvé
De tes arbres et de tes ciels bleus,
De ton parfum et de tes chants d'oiseaux.

Maintenant accessible tu es là,
Brillant et gracile,
Inondé de lumière
Comme une merveille devant moi.

Tu me reconnais,
Tu m'attires doucement,
Je frissonne de tous mes membres
De ta bienheureuse présence.
