Wenn ich dein gedenke

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wenn ich dein gedenke, 
Fragt mich gleich der Schenke:
Herr, warum so still?
Da von deinen Lehren
immer weiter hören
Saki gerne will.

Wenn ich mich vergesse 
Unter der Zypresse,
Hält er nichts davon;
Und im stillen Kreise
Bin ich doch so weise,
Klug wie Salomon.

Quand je pense à toi

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

Quand je pense à toi,
L'aubergiste me dit :
Maître, pourquoi es-tu si silencieux ?
Car de ton enseignement
Toujours plus
Saki voudrait en entendre.

Quand je m'oublie moi-même
Sous le cyprès,
Il n'obtient rien ;
Et dans ce cercle tranquille
Je suis pourtant aussi sage
Et avisé que Salomon.
