Du hattest einen Glanz auf deiner Stirn,
und eine hohe Abendklarheit war,
und sahst nur immer weg von mir,
ins Licht, ins Licht -
und fern verscholl das Echo meines Aufschreis.

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)
Tu avais un éclat sur ton front
et le soir avait une grande clarté ,
et tu regardais toujours loin de moi
vers la lumière --
et au loin l'écho de mon cri disparaissait.
