Der Liebe Leid

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Turkish (Türkçe)

Wenn Nachts im Wald die Turteltaube klagt,
dann netz' mein Lager schlaflos ich mit Thränen.
Sie klagt, sie klagt ich aber weine still verzagt,
Verbergend meines Herzens sehnend Wähnen.
So theilen wir womit die Liebe plagt,
Für sie die Klagen und für mich die Thränen,
Die Thränen.

Douleur d'amour

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

Quand la nuit dans la forêt la tourterelle se lamente,
alors j'arrose mon lit, sans sommeil, de mes larmes.
Elle se lamente, elle se lamente pendant que je pleure désespéré,
Cachant les égarements pleins de nostalgie de mon cœur.
Ainsi nous partageons les tourments de l'amour,
Pour elle la plainte, pour moi les larmes.
Les larmes.
