Versunken

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es brausen der Liebe Wogen
Und schäumen mir um das Herz;
Zwei tiefe Augen zogen
Mich mächtig niederwärts.

Mich lockte der Nixen Gemunkel,
Die wunderliebliche Mär,
Als ob die Erde dunkel
Und leuchtend die Tiefe wär'!

Als würde die seligste Ferne
Dort unten reizende Näh',
Als könnt' ich des Himmels Sterne
Dort greifen in blauer See.

Nun brausen und schäumen die Wogen
Und hüllen mich allwärts ein,
Es schimmert in Regenbogen
Die Welt von ferne herein.

Noyé

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

Les vagues de l'amour grondent
Et écument autour de mon cœur ;
Deux yeux profonds m'entraînent
Avec force dans les profondeurs.

J'ai été attiré par le murmure des esprits des eaux,
Et leurs contes merveilleux et charmants,
Comme si la terre était sombre
Et les profondeurs étaient illuminées !

Comme si les endroits éloignés les plus merveilleux
Là-bas en bas attiraient ici,
Comme si je pouvais attraper les étoiles du ciel
Là-bas dans la mer bleue.

Maintenant les vagues grondent et écument
Et m'entourent de toute part,
Dans l'arc-en-ciel brille
Le monde au loin.
