Ich und du

Language: German (Deutsch)

Rebhahnruf und Glockenlaut,
ich und du im Heidekraut.
Wandernde Marien seide
macht den Kuppler für uns beide.
Weiße Fäden uns umschlingen,
Glocken läuten, Glocken Klingen,
immer leiser, immer linder,
ich und du -- zwei Sonntags Kinder.

Moi et toi

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

Le cri de la perdrix et le son des cloches,
Moi et toi dans la bruyère.
Les fils de soie de Marie qui flottent
Forment un lien entre nous deux.
Des fils blancs nous enlacent,
Les cloches sonnent, les cloches résonnent,
Toujours délicatement, toujours doucement,
Moi et toi -- deux enfants, Dimanche.
