An Lili

Language: German (Deutsch)

Im holden Tal, auf schneebedeckten Höhen
War stets dein Bild mir nah;
Ich sah's um mich in lichten Wolken wehen,
Im Herzen war mir's da.

Empfinde hier, wie mit allmächt'gem Triebe
Ein Herz das andre zieht,
Und daß vergebens Liebe
Vor Liebe flieht.

À Lili

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

Dans cet charmante vallée, sur les hauteurs couvertes de neige,
Ton image était toujours près de moi ;
Je la voyait planer autour de moi, dans les légers nuages,
Elle était là, dans mon cœur.

J'ai ressenti ici combien avec un instinct tout puissant
Un cœur en attire un autre,
Et que l'amour en vain
Fuit devant l'amour.
