Nun zeiget das entblößte Feld

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Nun zeiget das entblößte Feld
 der ungebet'nen Gäste Zahl,
 die an den Halmen Nahrung fand
 und irrend jetzt sie weiter sucht.
 Des kleines Raubes klaget nicht 
 der Landmann, der ihn kaum bemerkt;
 dem Übermaße wünscht er 
 doch nicht ausgestellt zu sein.
 Was ihn dagegen sichern mag, 
 sieht er als Wohltat an,
 und willig fröhnt er dann zur Jagd,
 die seinen guten Herrn ergötzt.

Maintenant le champ nu montre

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

 Maintenant le champ nu montre
 Le nombre des hôtes non invités
 Qui ont trouvé la nourriture dans les blés en herbe,
 Et cherchent encore en errant.
 De ces petites rapines il ne se plaint pas,
 Le paysan, et le remarque à peine ;
 À l'excès il ne voudrait pas
 Pourtant être livré.
 Ce qui peut l'en préserver
 Il le voit comme un bienfait,
 Et il paie volontiers son tribut à la chasse
 Qui réjouit ses bons seigneurs.
