Ein Blatt aus sommerlichen Tagen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein Blatt aus sommerlichen Tagen,
Ich nahm es so im Wandern mit,
Auf daß es einst mir möge sagen,
Wie laut die Nachtigall geschlagen,
Wie grün der Wald, den ich durchschritt.

Une feuille verte

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

En me promenant j'ai pris
Une feuille des jours d'été
Pour qu'un jour elle puisse me dire
Combien fort le rossignol chantait,
Combien verte était la forêt parcourue.
