Tiefer sinket schon die Sonne

Language: German (Deutsch)

Tiefer sinket schon die Sonne,
Und es athmet alles Ruhe,
Tages Arbeit ist vollendet,
Und die Kinder scherzen munter.
Grüner glänzt die grüne Erde,
Eh die Sonne ganz versunken;
Milden Balsam hauchen leise
In die Lüfte nun die Blumen,
Der die Seele zart berühret,
Wenn die Sinne selig trunken.
Kleine Vögel, ferne Menschen,
Berge himmelan geschwungen,
Und der große Silberstrom,
Der im Thale schlank gewunden,
Alles scheint dem Dichter redend,
Denn er hat den Sinn gefunden;
Und das All ein einzig Chor,
Manches Lied aus einem Munde.

Coucher de soleil

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

Le soleil plonge déjà plus profond,
Et tout respire la paix,
Le travail de la journée est achevé,
Et les enfants s'amusent joyeusement.
La terre verte brille plus vert,
Avant que le soleil n'ait disparu entièrement.
Des senteurs douces se répandent légèrement
Depuis les fleurs dans l'air,
Qui tendrement touchent l'âme,
Quand les sens les boivent béatement.
Des petits oiseaux, des gens au loin,
Des montagnes bordant le ciel,
Et le grand courant argenté
Mince et tordu dans la vallée,
Tout parle au poète
Car il a découvert leur sens :
Et tout n'est qu'un seul chœur,
De nombreux chants sortant d'une bouche.
