Alle Winde schlafen

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Alle Winde schlafen
auf dem Spiegel der Flut;
kühle Schatten des Abends
decken die Müden zu.

Luna hängt sich Schleier
über ihr Gesicht,
schwebt in dämmernden Träumen
über die Wasser hin.

Alles, alles stille
auf dem weiten Meer!
Nur mein Herz will nimmer
mit zu Ruhe gehn.

In der Liebe Fluten
treibt es her und hin,
wo die Stürme nicht ruhen
bis der Nachen sinkt.


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE FRE

Tous les vents dorment

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

Tous les vents dorment
sur le miroir des flots ;
des ombres fraîches du soir,
recouvrent la fatigue.

La lune suspend un voile
sur son visage,
flottant en des rêves crépusculaires
au-dessus de l'eau.

Tout, tout est silence
sur la vaste mer !
Seul mon cœur ne sera jamais
En repos.

Le flot de l'amour
le conduit ici et là,
où les tempêtes ne prennent pas de repos
jusqu'à ce que la barque coule.
