Friedlich bekämpfen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Friedlich bekämpfen
  Nacht sich und Tag.
Wie das zu dämpfen,
  Wie das zu lösen vermag!

Der mich bedrückte,
  Schläfst du schon, Schmerz?
Was mich beglückte
  Sage, was war's doch, mein Herz?

Freude wie Kummer,
  Fühl' ich, zerrann,
Aber den Schlummer
  Führten sie leise heran.

Und im Entschweben,
  Immer empor,
Kommt mir das Leben
  Ganz, wie ein Schlummerlied vor.

Impression vespérale

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

Paisiblement la nuit
Et le jour se combattent :
Comment se contenir,
Comment pouvoir se délier.

Toi qui m'oppressais,
Douleur, dors-tu déjà ?
Ce qui me réjouissait,
Dis, mon cœur, qu'était-ce ?
 
La joie, comme le chagrin
S'est enfuie, je le sens,
Mais ils menaient doucement
Vers le sommeil.

Et alors que je plane,
Toujours plus haut,
La vie m'apparaît
Comme une berceuse.
