Der du am Sternenbogen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der du am Sternenbogen
Als Erstling kommst gezogen,
Schön vor den Brüdern du,
O sei mit deinem Strahle,
Gegrüßt sei tausend Male,
Lieblicher Bote der Ruh'!

Schon lösest du das Bangen,
Das mich am Tag umfangen,
Mit kühlem Dämmer sacht
Und lässest mir im Innern
Aufgehn ein süß Erinnern
Wie eine Blume der Nacht.

Chanson de la jeune fille

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

Toi qui dans l'arc des étoiles
Apparais comme la première,
Belle parmi tes frères,
Ô, avec ton rayonnement,
Sois saluée mille fois,
Charmante messagère du repos !

Déjà tu calmes la peur
Qui m'avait saisi pendant le jour,
Avec une fraiche et douce pénombre,
Et tu fais monter en moi
Un doux souvenir,
Comme une fleur de la nuit.
