Auf Flügeln des Gesanges

Language: German (Deutsch)

Auf Flügeln des Gesanges,
Herzliebchen, trag ich dich fort,
Fort nach den Fluren des Ganges,
Dort weiß ich den schönsten Ort;

Dort liegt ein [rotblühender]1 Garten
Im stillen Mondenschein,
Die Lotosblumen erwarten
Ihr trautes Schwesterlein.

Die Veilchen kichern und kosen,
Und schaun nach den Sternen empor,
Heimlich erzählen die Rosen
Sich duftende Märchen ins Ohr.

Es hüpfen herbei und lauschen
Die frommen, klugen Gazelln,
Und in der Ferne rauschen
Des [heiligen]2 Stromes Well'n.

Dort wollen wir niedersinken
Unter dem Palmenbaum,
Und Liebe und Ruhe trinken,
Und träumen seligen Traum.

Sur les ailes de mon chant

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

Sur les ailes de mon chant, Bienaimée,
nous allons nous envoler
loin, là-bas, vers le Gange et ses prés,
Oû je connais un lieu de toute beauté.

Là, au clair de lune, dans un silence feutré
s'étale un jardin tout de rouge fleuri;
les fleurs de lotus attendent
qu'arrive leur soeurette chérie.

Les violettes se taquinent en riant
et regardent le firmament étoilé;
les roses, en chuchotant,
se racontent des histoires parfumées.

Les sages et timides gazelles
arrivent par petits bonds, écouter;
au loin on entend gronder
les ondes du fleuve sacré.

Là, sous le palmier,
nous allons nous étendre,
savourer l'amour en tranquillité
et rêver un rêve béni, de félicité.
