Fischerweise

Language: German (Deutsch)

Den Fischer fechten Sorgen
Und Gram und Leid nicht an,
Er löst am frühen Morgen
Mit leichtem Sinn den Kahn.

Da lagert rings noch Friede
Auf Wald und Flur und Bach,
Er ruft mit seinem Liede
Die gold'ne Sonne wach.

[Und]1 singt zu seinem Werke
Aus voller frischer Brust,
Die Arbeit gibt ihm Stärke,
Die Stärke Lebenslust!

Bald wird ein bunt Gewimmel
In allen Tiefen laut,
Und plätschert durch den Himmel
Der sich im Wasser baut -

Und schlüpft auf glatten Steinen
Und badet sich und schnellt,
Der Große frißt den Kleinen
Wie auf der ganzen Welt.

Doch wer ein Netz will stellen
Braucht Augen klar und gut,
Muß heiter gleich den Wellen
Und frey seyn wie die Fluth;

Dort angelt auf der Brücke
Die Hirtinn - schlauer Wicht,
[Gib auf nur deine]2 Tücke
Den Fisch betrügst du nicht!

Chanson de pêcheur

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

Le pêcheur n'est pas harcelé par les soucis
Et les chagrins et les douleurs ;
Il détache tôt le matin
Avec l'esprit léger son bateau.

La paix est tout autour de lui
Dans tous les prairies et les ruisseaux,
Il appelle avec son chant
Le soleil doré à s'éveiller.

Il chante pendant son travail
Avec un cœur plein de vigueur,
Son travail lui donne la force,
Sa force la joie de vivre.

Bientôt un grouillement multicolore
Résonnera dans les profondeurs
Et jaillira à travers le ciel
Qui se reflète dans l'eau.






Mais celui qui veut poser un filet,
A besoin de bons yeux clairs,
Il doit être aussi serein que les vagues
Et aussi libre que les flots.

Là sur le pont est en train de pêcher
La bergère, petite rusée,
Arrête tes tours,
Tu ne duperas pas ce poisson !
