Wiese im Park

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie wird mir zeitlos.
Rückwärts hingebannt weil' ich
und stehe fest im Wiesenplan,
in dem grünen Spiegel hier der Schwan.
Und dieses war mein Land

Die vielen Glockenblumen!
Horch und schau!

Wie lange steht er schon auf diesem Stein,
der Admiral.
Es muß ein Sonntag sein
und alles läutet blau.

Nicht weiter will ich.
Eitler Fuß, mach Halt!
Vor diesem Wunder ende deinen Lauf.
Ein toter Tag schlägt seine Augen auf.
und alles bleibt so alt.

Pelouse dans le parc

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

Il ne me reste plus de temps.
Abandonné en arrière je m'attarde
et je me tiens ferme dans la pelouse,
comme le cygne ici dans le miroir vert.
Et c'était mon pays .

Toutes ces campanules !
Écoute et regarde !

Depuis combien de temps se tient-il sur cette pierre,
Cela doit être dimanche
et tout sonne bleu.

Pas plus loin je n'irai.
Pied vaniteux, arrête-toi !
Devant cette merveille arrête ta marche.
Un jour mort ouvre ses yeux,
et tout est si vieux.
