An Chloen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Bey der Liebe reinsten Flammen,
Glänzt das arme Hütten-Dach:
Liebchen! ewig nun beysammen!
Liebchen! [schlafend]1 oder wach!

Süßes, zärtliches Umfangen,
Wenn der Tag am Himmel graut;
Heimlich klopfendes Verlangen,
Wenn der Abend niederthaut!

Wonne dort auf allen Hügeln,
Wonn' im Thal, und Jubel hier!
Volle Freyheit, zu verriegeln
Unsre kleine Hütten-Thür!

Lobgesang in Finsternissen,
Wo kein Neider sich versteckt,
Wo nicht mehr, indem wir küßen,
Jedes Lüftchen uns erschreckt!

Und wir theilen alle Freuden,
Sonn' und Mond und Sternen-Glanz;
Allen Segen, alles Leiden,
Arbeit und Gebet, und Tanz.

So, bey reiner Liebe Flammen,
Endet sich der schöne Lauf;
Ruhig schweben wir zusammen,
Liebchen! Liebchen! Himmel auf.

À Chloé

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

Par les flammes les plus pures de l'amour,
Le pauvre toit de la chaumière brille :
Chérie ! nous sommes ensemble pour toujours !
Chérie ! en dormant ou éveillés !

Doux et tendres embrassements
Quand le jour se lève dans le ciel :
Secrets désirs palpitants,
Quand la rosée du soir tombe !

Par là le bonheur est sur chaque colline
Même dans la vallée et la joie ici !
Nous avons pleine liberté de fermer
La porte de notre petite chaumière !

Hymne dans les ténèbres,
Où aucun jaloux ne se cache ;
Où pas plus, pendant que nous embrassons,
Aucun courant d'air ne nous effraie !

Et nous partageons toutes les joies,
Le soleil, la lune et l'éclat des étoiles ;
Chaque bénédiction, chaque peine,
Travail et prière et danse.

Ainsi, par les flammes de l'amour pur,
Le joli cours arrive à sa fin ;
Nous flottons ensemble paisiblement,
Chérie ! Chérie ! vers le ciel.
