Sonne der Schlummerlosen

Language: German (Deutsch) after the English

Sonne der Schlummerlosen, bleicher Stern!
Wie Tränen zittern, schimmerst du von fern;
Du zeigst die Nacht, doch scheuchst sie nicht zurück,
Wie ähnlich bist du dem entschwundnen Glück,
Dem Licht vergangner Tage, das fortan nur leuchten,
Aber nimmer wärmen kann!
Die Trauer wacht, wie es durchs Dunkel wallt,
Deutlich doch fern, hell, aber o wie kalt!

Soleil de celui qui ne dort pas

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

Soleil de celui qui ne dort pas, pâle étoile,
Comme des larmes qui tremblent, tu scintilles au loin ;
Tu fais voir la nuit, mais tu ne la fais pas fuir,
Comme tu ressembles au bonheur disparu,
À la lumière des jours passés qui désormais éclaire seulement
Mais ne peut jamais réchauffer !
L'affliction veille, comme à travers l'obscurité elle flotte,
Distincte mais lointaine, claire, mais ô combien froide !
