Morgens send ich dir die Veilchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Morgens send ich dir die Veilchen,
Die ich früh im Wald gefunden,
Und des Abends bring ich Rosen,
Die ich brach in Dämmrungstunden.

Weißt du, was die hübschen Blumen
Dir Verblümtes sagen möchten?
Treu sein sollst du mir am Tage
Und mich lieben in den Nächten.

Le matin je t'envoie des violettes

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

Le matin je t'envoie des violettes
Que j'ai trouvées dans la forêt au petit matin,
Et le soir je t'apporte des roses
Que j'ai cueillies aux heures du crépuscule.

Sais-tu ce que les jolies fleurs
Aimeraient indirectement te dire ?
Que tu dois m'être fidèle durant le jour,
Et m'aimer durant la nuit.
