Ich irr in Tal und Hainen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich irr in Tal und Hainen
Bei kühler Abendstund,
Ach, weinen möcht ich, weinen
So recht aus Herzensgrund.

Und alter Zeiten Grüßen
Kam da, im Tal erwacht,
Gleich wie von fernen Flüssen
Das Rauschen durch die Nacht.

Die Sonne ging hinunter,
Da säuselt' kaum die Welt,
Ich blieb noch lange munter
Allein im stillen Feld.

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

J'erre dans la vallée et les bois
À l'heure fraîche du soir,
Ah, je voudrais pleurer, pleurer
Du fond du cœur.

Et le souvenir des anciens temps
Arriva alors, éveillé dans la vallée,
Pareil au chant dans la nuit
De fleuves lointains.

Le soleil se coucha,
Le monde alors murmurait à peine,
Je restai encore longtemps, en éveil,
Seul dans la campagne silencieuse.
