Viel Glück zur Reise, Schwalben!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Viel Glück zur Reise, Schwalben!
Ihr eilt, ein langer Zug,
Zum schönen warmen Süden
In frohem kühnen Flug.

Gern möchte wohl die Reise
Ich einmal tun mit euch,
Zu seh'n die tausend Wunder,
Die darbeut jedes Reich.

Doch immer käm ich wieder,
Wie schön auch jedes Land,
Und reich an Wundern wäre,
Zurück in's Vaterland.


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE FRE

About the headline (FAQ)

Note: at the top of the Schumann score is the following text: "Obwohl deutscher Herkunft, und in deutscher Sprache wie ihrer Muttersprache dichtend, ist die Dichterin eine warme Patriotin ; an unzähligen Stellen preist sie die Schönheiten des nordischen Himmels. Das folgende Gedicht ist ein Beleg dazu."

Bonne chance pour votre voyage, hirondelles !

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

Bonne chance pour votre voyage, hirondelles !
Vous vous hâtez pour la migration,
Vers le sud magnifique et doux
En un vol joyeux et hardi.

J'aimerais bien voyager
Un jour avec vous,
Pour voir les milliers de merveilles
Que chaque royaume présente.

Mais je voudrais toujours revenir,
Aussi beau que soit chaque pays,
Et aussi riche en merveilles,
Vers ma patrie.
