Friedlicher Abend senkt sich aufs...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Friedlicher Abend senkt sich aufs Gefilde;
Sanft entschlummert Natur, um ihre Züge
Schwebt der Dämmerung zarte Verhüllung, und sie
  Lächelt die Holde;

Lächelt, ein schlummernd Kind in Vaters Armen,
Der voll Liebe zu ihr sich neigt, sein göttlich
Auge weilt auf ihr, und es weht sein Odem 
  Über ihr Antlitz.

Un soir paisible tombe sur le pays

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

Un soir paisible tombe sur le pays;
La nature s'endort doucement, autour de ses traits
Le voile du crépuscule plane délicatement, et
Gracieuse, elle sourit;

Sourit comme une enfant somnolente dans les bras de son père,
Qui plein d'amour se penche sur lui, ses yeux divin
S'attardent sur elle, et souffle son haleine
Sur son visage.
