Nacht (Passacaglia)

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

Finstre, schwarze Riesenfalter
Töteten der Sonne Glanz.
Ein geschlossnes Zauberbuch,
Ruht der Horizont - verschwiegen.

Aus dem Qualm verlorner Tiefen
Steigt ein Duft, Erinnrung mordend!
Finstre, schwarze Reisenfalter
Töteten der Sonne Glanz.

Und vom Himmel erdenwärts
Senken sich mit schweren Schwingen
Unsichtbar die Ungetume
Auf die Menschenherzen nieder...
Finstre, schwarze Riesenfalter.

Nuit

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

Des papillons géants sinistres, noirs
Font mourir l'éclat du soleil.
Comme un livre de magie fermé
Repose l'horizon -- muet.

D'une épaisse fumée venue des profondeurs
Un parfum s'élève, détruisant la mémoire !
Des papillons géants sinistres, noirs
Font mourir l'éclat du soleil.

Et du ciel vers la terre
Descendent avec leurs lourdes ailes,
Invisibles, les monstres
Sur le cœur des hommes en bas...
Des papillons géants sinistres, noirs.
