Mein Herz ist schwer, mein Auge wacht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mein Herz ist schwer, mein Auge wacht,
Der Wind fährt seufzend durch die Nacht;
Die Wipfel rauschen weit und breit,
Sie rauschen von vergangner Zeit.

Sie rauschen von vergangner Zeit,
Von großen Glück und Herzeleid,
Vom Schloß und von der Jungfrau drin -
Wo ist das alles, alles hin?

Wo ist das alles, alles hin,
Leid, Lieb' und Lust und Jugendsinn?
Der Wind fährt seufzend durch die Nacht,
Mein Herz ist schwer, mein Auge wacht.


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE

Mon cœur est lourd, mes yeux veillent

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

Mon cœur est lourd, mes yeux veillent
Le vent court dans la nuit en gémissant ;
Partout les cimes chantent,
Elles chantent le temps passé.

Elles chantent le temps passé,
Les grands bonheurs et les peines de cœur,
Le palais et sa vierge --
Où tout cela s'en est-il allé ?

 Où tout cela s'en est-il allé ,
Peines, amour et désir et élans juvéniles ?
Le vent court dans la nuit en gémissant,
Mon cœur est lourd, mes yeux veillent.
