Weiter geht's und immer weiter!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Weiter geht's und immer weiter!
Sieh, da kommt auf müdem Fuß
Noch ein Wandrer mir entgegen.
«Bring dem Städtchen meinen Gruß!

Und am Tore, wenn des Zöllners
Blonde Tochter schaut herfür,
Bring ihr diese wilde Rose,
Grüß sie einmal noch von mir!»  -- 

Weiter geht's und immer weiter!
Da schweigen alle Vögel bald
Vor mir stehn im Duft die Wälder,
Rückwärts brennt der Abendschein.

Einsam werden Weg' und Stege,
Ganz alleine wandr' ich bald;
Einen Falken seh ich kreisen  -- 
Über mir schon rauscht der Wald.

Aller plus loin, et toujours plus loin !

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

Aller plus loin, et toujours plus loin !
Vois, encore un voyageur
Qui d'un pas fatigué vient à ma rencontre.
» Porte mon salut au bourg !

Et si la fille blonde du douanier
Surveille de sa porte,
Porte-lui cette rose sauvage,
Salue-la donc pour moi ! «

Aller plus loin, et toujours plus loin !
Alors que tous les oiseaux vont bientôt se taire
Je sens devant moi l'odeur de la forêt,
Derrière flamboient les lueurs du soir.

Les chemins et les ponts sont désertés,
Bientôt je serai tout seul à cheminer ;
Je vois un faucon tracer ses cercles.
Déjà au-dessus de moi la forêt murmure.
