Wo der Goldregen steht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Eh' wir weitergehen,
Laß uns stille stehen,
Hier ist alles ruhig, weit und klar.
Eine Blütendolde
Von dem gelben Golde
Dieses Strauches in dein braunes Haar!

Seine Zweige hängen
Schwer und voll und drängen
Über uns mit süßer Kraft herein.
Laß uns stehn und warten
Tief im fernsten Garten
Kann die Liebe nicht verborg'ner sein.

Eine alte Weise
Klingt verträumt und leise,
Und du siehst mich an und lächelst hold.
Quellen gehn und rinnen,
Ach, was jetzt beginnen?
Sieh, es regnet Glück und Sonnengold.

Où se tient le cytise

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

Avant d'aller plus loin
Tenons-nous en silence,
Ici tout est calme, vaste et clair.
Une ombelle 
de fleurs d'or jaune
De ce buisson dans ta chevelure brune !

Ses branches pendent, 
lourdes et pleines et appuient
Sur nous avec une force douce.
Arrêtons-nous et attendons 
tout au fond du jardin
Que l'amour puisse se montrer.

Une vieille mélodie retentit 
comme un rêve, un murmure,
Et tu me regardes et souris doucement.
Les sources avancent et coulent. 
Ah, qu'est-ce qui commence ?
Regarde, il pleut du bonheur et de l'or du soleil.
