Wind im Gesträuch und Vogelpfiff

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wind im Gesträuch und Vogelpfiff
Und hoch im höchsten süßen Blau
Ein stilles, stolzes Wolkenschiff . . . 

Ich träume von einer blonden Frau,
Ich träume von meiner Jugendzeit,
Der hohe Himmel blau und weit
Ist meiner Sehnsucht Wiege,
Darin ich stillgesinnt
Und selig warm
Mit leisem Summen liege
So wie in seiner Mutter Arm
Ein Kind.

Jour de printemps

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

Vent dans les buissons et pépiements d'oiseaux
Et là-haut, au plus haut d'un azur charmant
Un navire de nuages magnifique et silencieux ...
Je rêve d'une femme blonde,
Je rêve du temps de ma jeunesse,
Le grand ciel bleu et vaste
Est le berceau de ma nostalgie
Où je songe en silence,
Et où dans une chaude béatitude
Je m'allonge avec un léger fredonnement
Comme le fait dans les bras de sa mère
Un enfant.
