Rast

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nun merk' ich erst, wie müd' ich bin,
Da ich zur Ruh' mich lege;
Das Wandern hielt mich munter hin
Auf unwirthbarem Wege.

Die Füße frugen nicht nach Rast,
Es war zu kalt zum Stehen,
Der Rücken fühlte keine Last,
Der Sturm half fort mich wehen.

In eines Köhlers engem Haus
Hab' Obdach ich gefunden;
Doch meine Glieder ruhn nicht aus:
So brennen ihre Wunden.

Auch du, mein Herz, [im]1 Kampf und Sturm
So wild und so verwegen,
Fühlst in der Still' erst deinen Wurm
Mit heißem Stich sich regen!

Repos

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

Je vois seulement maintenant combien je suis las,
Alors que je m'allonge pour me reposer :
La marche m'a maintenu plein d'entrain
Sur un chemin hostile.
Mes pieds ne réclamaient pas le repos,
Il faisait trop froid pour s'arrêter ;
Mon dos ne sentait pas la charge,
La tempête me poussait en avant.

Dans une petite maison de charbonnier
J'ai trouvé refuge ;
Pourtant mes membres ne peuvent se détendre
Tant brûlent leurs blessures.
Toi aussi, mon cœur, dans le combat et la tempête,
Si sauvage et si audacieux,
C'est seulement dans le calme que tu sens le ver
Qui, avec une brûlante piqûre, se met à remuer.
