Spätherbst

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der graue Nebel tropft so still
Herab auf Feld und Wald und Heide,
Als ob der Himmel weinen will
In übergroßem Leide.

Die Blumen wollen nicht mehr blühn,
Die Vöglein schweigen in den Hainen,
Es starb sogar das letzte Grün,
Da mag er auch wohl weinen.

Automne tardif

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

Le brouillard gris tombe si silencieusement
Sur les champs, la forêt et la lande,
Comme si le ciel voulait pleurer
En un chagrin démesuré.

Les fleurs ne fleuriront plus,
Les oiseaux sont muets dans les bosquets,
Même la dernière touche de vert a expiré,
Comme il fait bien de pleurer.
