Verschwiegene Liebe

Language: German (Deutsch)

Über Wipfel und Saaten
In den Glanz hinein -
Wer mag sie erraten,
Wer holte sie ein?
Gedanken sich wiegen,
Die Nacht ist verschwiegen,
Gedanken sind frei.

Errät es nur eine,
Wer an sie gedacht
Beim Rauschen der Haine,
Wenn niemand mehr wacht
Als die Wolken, die fliegen -
Mein Lieb ist verschwiegen
Und schön wie die Nacht.

Amour silencieux

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

Sur les cimes et les semailles
Dans l'éclat intérieur --
Qui peut les deviner,
Qui peut les attraper ?
Les pensées se balancent,
La nuit est silencieuse,
Les pensées sont libres.

Une seule personne devine,
Celui qui a pensé à elle
Près du bosquet qui murmure
Quand personne ne regardait plus
Sauf les nuages qui volaient --
Mon amour est silencieux
Et aussi agréable que la nuit.
