In dem Traum siehst du die stillen

Language: German (Deutsch)

In dem Traum siehst du die stillen
Fabelhaften Blumen prangen;
Und mit Sehnsucht und Verlangen
Ihre Düfte dich erfüllen.

Doch von diesen Blumen scheidet
Dich ein Abgrund tief und schaurig,
Und dein Herz wird endlich traurig,
Und es blutet und es leidet.

Wie sie locken, wie sie schimmern!
Ach, wie komm ich da hinüber?
Meister Hämmerling, mein Lieber,
Kannst du mir die Brücke zimmern?

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

En rêve, tu vois, silencieusement,
Merveilleusement, les fleurs briller ;
Et avec nostalgie et désir
Leurs parfums t'envahissent.

Mais de ces fleurs te sépare
Un gouffre profond et effrayant,
Et ton cœur devient triste sans fin
Et il saigne et il souffre.

Comme elles attirent, comme elles brillent !
Ah, comment puis-je aller là-bas ?
Maître Hämmerling, mon amour,
Peux-tu construire le pont pour moi ?
