Sorge nie, daß ich verrate

Language: German (Deutsch)

Sorge nie, daß ich verrate
Meine Liebe vor der Welt,
Wenn mein Mund ob deiner Schönheit
Von Metaphern überquellt.

Unter einem Wald von Blumen
Liegt, in still verborgner Hut,
Jenes glühende Geheimnis,
Jene tief geheime Glut.

Sprühn einmal verdächtge Funken
Aus den Rosen - sorge nie!
Diese Welt glaubt nicht an Flammen,
Und sie nimmts für Poesie.

Ne crains pas que je te trahisse

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

Ne crains pas que je te trahisse,
Toi mon amour devant le monde,
Quand ma bouche déborde
De métaphores de ta beauté.

Sous une forêt de fleurs,
Dans un abri caché, il y a
Ce secret rayonnant,
Cette braise secrète.

Si un jour des étincelles suspectes
Jaillissent des roses, n'aies crainte !
Ce monde ne croit pas aux flammes
Et les prend pour de la poésie.
