Da meine lippen reglos sind und brennen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Da meine lippen reglos sind und brennen,
Beacht ich erst, wohin mein fuss geriet:
In andrer herren prächtiges gebiet.
Noch war vielleicht mir möglich, mich zu trennen;
Da schien es, daß durch hohe gitterstäbe
Der blick, vor dem ich ohne lass gekniet,
Mich fragend suchte oder zeichen gäbe.

Ici mes lèvres sont immobiles et brûlent

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

Ici mes lèvres sont immobiles et brûlent,
Je considère d'abord où mon pied est arrivé :
Dans le territoire merveilleux d'un autre maître.
Cependant c'était peut-être possible pour moi de me détacher ;
Là il brillait, à travers les hauts barreaux,
Le regard, devant lequel j'étais agenouillé sans cesse,
Me cherchait interrogatif ou me faisait signe.
