Im Garten heute Morgen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Im Garten heute Morgen, 
Als ich deinen Brief erbrach,
Fand ich drin verborgen
Ein Rosenblatt.
Ein Rosenblatt, deinen Locken entsunken. 
Als ich es trunken mit den Lippen berührte, 
Kam ein Windhauch und entführte
Den holden Gast. 
Nun segelt es lustig zu dir zurück, 
Gleich einer Krone trägt es mein Glück
Auf tiefrotem Sammt -- und verblaßt.

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

Ce matin au jardin,
Quand j'ouvris ta lettre,
J'y trouvai caché
Un pétale de rose.
Un pétale de rose, échappé de tes boucles.
Quand, enivré, je le touchai de mes lèvres
Un souffle de vent arriva et emporta
L'hôte béni.
Il navigue maintenant joyeusement vers toi,
Pareil à une couronne il porte mon bonheur
Sur un velours rouge foncé -- et se fane.
