Die Rose, die Lilie, die Taube, die...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Rose, die Lilie, die Taube, die Sonne,
Die liebt' ich einst alle in Liebeswonne.
Ich lieb' sie nicht mehr, ich liebe alleine
Die Kleine, die Feine, die Reine, die Eine;1
Sie selber, aller Liebe [Bronne]2,
Ist Rose und Lilie und Taube und Sonne.3

1 Lachner adds after this: "Sie lieb ich alleine."
2 Meyerbeer, Schumann: "Wonne"
3 Schumann adds after this: "Ich liebe alleine / Die Kleine, die Feine, die Reine, die Eine."; Lachner adds: "Ich liebe alleine die Reine, die Eine, / Sie selber ist Taube und Sonne." ; Meyerbeer adds
Das Klagen, das Sehnen, die Seufzer, die Tränen,
Einst verlacht' ich sie mit Spotten und Höhnen; 
Ich lache nicht mehr, ich sah sie, die Eine, 
Die Holde, die Reine, nun seuftz' ich und weine, 
Doch Reiz verleiht ein Blick der Schönen 
Dem Klagen, dem Sehnen, den Seufzern, den Tränen.

Autrefois lis et rose, et colombe et...

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

Autrefois lis et rose, et colombe et soleil,
Je les ai tous aimés d'un amour sans pareil.
A présent de mon cœur qui changea de tendresse,
Ma mignonne si douce est l'unique maîtresse ;
Elle même est pour moi source pure d'amour,
La colombe et la rose, et le lis et le jour.
