Bleibe hier und singe

Language: German (Deutsch)

Bleibe hier und singe,
Liebe Nachtigall!
Dein Gesang erklinge
Schmetternd überall.

Flur und Waldung lauschet,
Alles hört dir zu;
Nicht ein Blättchen rauschet,
Bleiben all in Ruh.

Dich bewundernd schweiget
Rings der Vögel Chor,
Seinen Höhn entsteiget
's Eichhorn, wird ganz Ohr.

Hör' ich recht, so brauset
Minder jetzt der Bach,
Da hier Stille hauset,
Läßt sein Toben nach.

Bleibe hier und singe,
Liebe Nachtigall!
Dein Gesang erklinge
Schmetternd überall.

Au rossignol

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

Reste ici et chante,
Cher rossignol !
Que ton chant s'entende
En roulades tout autour.

Champs et forêts prêtent l'oreille,
Tous t'écoutent :
Pas une feuille ne frémit,
Toutes restent immobiles.

En admiration devant toi, dans le silence
Tombe le chœur des oiseaux aux alentours.
De son sommet surgit
L'écureuil tout ouïe.

Si j'écoute bien, le mugissement
Du ruisseau est maintenant moins fort.
Maintenant que le silence demeure ici,
Sa fureur s'affaiblit.

Reste ici et chante,
Cher rossignol !
Que ton chant s'entende
En roulades tout autour.
