Stille schafft sie in der Kammer

Language: German (Deutsch)

Stille schafft sie in der Kammer
Und der Hof liegt längst verödet.
Im Hollunder vor der Kammer
Kläglich eine Amsel flötet.

Silbern schaut ihr Bild im Spiegel
Fremd sie an im Zwielichtscheine
Und verdämmert fahl im Spiegel
Und ihr graut vor seiner Reine.

Traumhaft singt ein Knecht im Dunkel
Und sie starrt von Schmerz geschüttelt.
Röte träufelt durch das Dunkel.
Jäh am Tor der Südwind rüttelt.

Elle travaille silencieusement dans la...

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

Elle travaille silencieusement dans la chambre
Et la cour reste longtemps déserte.
Dans le sureau devant la chambre
Un merle siffle misérablement.

Son image argentée, dans le miroir
La regarde, étrangère dans la lueur du crépuscule
Et s'assombrit, blafarde dans le miroir,
Et elle frémit devant sa pureté.

Onirique, un valet de ferme chante dans le noir
Et elle le fixe, tressaillant de douleur.
Du rouge pénètre goutte à goutte dans le noir.
Soudain le vent du sud secoue la porte.
