Die Rose

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es lockte schöne Wärme,
Mich an das Licht zu wagen,
Da brannten wilde Gluthen:
Das muß ich ewig klagen.
Ich konnte lange blühen
In milden heitern Tagen;
Nun muß ich frühe welken,
Dem Leben schon entsagen. 
Es kam die Morgenröthe,
Da ließ ich alles Zagen
Und öffnete die Knospe,
Wo alle Reize lagen.
Ich konnte freundlich duften,
Und meine Krone tragen,
Da ward zu heiß die Sonne,
Die muß ich drum verklagen.
Was soll der milde Abend?
Muß ich nun traurig fragen.
Er kann mich nicht mehr retten,
Die Schmerzen nicht verjagen.
Die Röthe ist verblichen,
Bald wird mich Kälte nagen.
Mein kurzes junges Leben
Wollt' ich noch sterbend sagen.

La rose

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

Doucement la douceur me tentait
De me risquer dans la lumière,
Là le feu brûlait sauvagement ;
Je dois pour toujours me plaindre,
J'aurais pu depuis longtemps fleurir
Dans des jours doux et brillants ;
Maintenant je dois vite me faner,
Renoncer déjà à la vie.
L'aurore est arrivée,
J'ai laissé toute timidité
Et j'ai ouvert le bouton
Où tous mes charmes reposent.
Je pouvais sentir agréablement,
Et porter ma couronne,
Alors le soleil devint trop chaud,
De cela je dois l'accuser.
À quoi sert le doux soir ?
Je dois maintenant demander tristement.
Il ne peut plus me sauver
Ni chasser ma douleur.
Le rouge a disparu,
Bientôt le froid va me ronger.
Ma brève et jeune vie,
En mourant, je voudrais la raconter encore.
