Klagen ist der Mond gekommen

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Klagen ist der Mond [gekommen]1,
Vor der Sonne Angesicht,
Soll ihm noch der Himmel frommen,
Da du Glanz ihm nahmst und Licht?

Seine Sterne ging er zählen,
Und er will vor Leid vergehn:
Zwei der schönsten Sterne fehlen,
Die in deinem Antlitz stehn.

La lune est venue se plaindre

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

La lune est venue se plaindre
Devant les yeux du soleil :
À quoi lui sert le ciel,
Si tu as pris son éclat et sa lumière ?

Elle est allée compter ses étoiles,
Et elle mourra de chagrin :
Deux des plus belles étoiles manquent,
Celles qui appartiennent à ton visage.
