Pantomime

Language: French (Français)

Pierrot, qui n'a rien d'un Clitandre,
Vide un flacon sans plus attendre,
Et, pratique, entame un pâté.

Cassandre, au fond de l'avenue,
Verse une larme méconnue
Sur son neveu déshérité.

Ce faquin d'Arlequin combine
L'enlèvement de Colombine
Et pirouette quatre fois.

Colombine rêve, surprise
De sentir un cœur dans la brise
Et d'entendre en son cœur des voix.

Pantomime

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

Pierrot, der so ungleich Clitander,
Langt zu und vertilgt nacheinander
Ohne Zaudern Pastete und Wein.

Cassander seh' ich dort stehen,
Eine Träne im Grund der Alleen
Dem enterbten Neffen zu weihn.

Zur Entführung von Colombine
Macht der Schelm von Harlekin Miene,
Der sein Rad hier viermal schlägt.

Colombine staunt, dass im Winde
Ein Herz sie träumend empfinde,
Und ihr Herz ein Flüstern bewegt.
