Der Vollmond strahlt auf Bergeshöhn

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Vollmond strahlt auf Bergeshöhn -
Wie hab ich dich vermißt!
Du süßes Herz! es ist so schön,
Wenn treu die Treue küßt.

Was frommt des Maien holde Zier?
Du warst mein Frühlingsstrahl!
Licht meiner Nacht, O lächle mir
Im Tode noch einmal!

Sie trat hinein beim Vollmondschein,
Sie blickte himmelwärts;
"Im Leben fern, im Tode dein!"
Und sanft brach Herz an Herz.

Romance

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

La pleine lune resplendit sur le sommet de la montagne,
Comme tu m'as manqué !
Toi tendre cœur, c'est si beau
Quand la fidélité embrasse fidèlement.

À quoi servent les charmants ornements de mai
Tu étais mon rayon de printemps !
Lumière de ma nuit, ô souris-moi
Dans la mort encore une fois.

Elle apparut dans la lumière de la pleine lune,
Et regarda vers le ciel ;
"Loin dans la vie, tienne dans la mort !"
Et tendrement un cœur se brise sur un cœur.
