Die Gebüsche

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es wehet kühl und leise
Die Luft durch dunkle Auen,
Und nur der Himmel lächelt
Aus tausend hellen Augen.
Es regt nur Eine Seele
Sich in [der Meere]1 Brausen,
Und in den leisen Worten,
Die durch die Blätter rauschen.
So tönt in Welle Welle,
Wo Geister heimlich trauren;
So folgen Worte Worten,
Wo Geister Leben hauchen.
Durch alle Töne tönet
Im bunten Erdentraume
[Ein]2 leiser Ton gezogen,
Für den, der heimlich lauschet.

Les buissons

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

Fraîchement et doucement souffle
L'air à travers les sombres prairies,
Et seul le ciel sourit
De son millier d'yeux brillants.
Seule une âme s'agite
Au milieu des rugissements de la mer,
Et dans les doux mots
Murmurés à travers les feuilles.
Ainsi la vague fait écho à la vague,
Là où les esprits secrètement se désolent ;
Ainsi les mots suivent les mots
Là où les esprits soufflent la vie.
À travers tous les sons retentit
Dans le rêve multicolore de la terre
Un son faible dirigé
Vers celui qui écoute secrètement.
