Der Mond steht über dem Berge

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Mond steht über dem Berge,
So recht für verliebte Leut';
Im Garten rieselt ein Brunnen,
Sonst Stille weit und breit.

Neben der Mauer im Schatten,
Da stehn der Studenten drei,
Mit Flöt' und Geig' und Zither,
Und singen und spielen dabei.

Die Klänge schleichen der Schönsten
Sacht in den Traum hinein,
sie schaut den blonden Geliebten
und lispelt: »Vergiß nicht mein!«

Sérénade

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

La lune est sur la montagne,
En harmonie avec les gens qui s'aiment;
À part une fontaine qui coule dans le jardin,
Règne un vaste et profond silence.

Près du mur, dans l'ombre,
Il y a trois étudiants,
Avec flûte, violon et cithare,
Et là, ils chantent et jouent.

Les sons se glissent jusqu'à la plus belle,
Doucement perdue dans ses rêves,
Elle regarde les blonds amoureux,
Et tout doucement murmure : "ne m'oubliez pas!"
