Taut erst Blauveilchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Taut erst Blauveilchen aus dem Schnee,
Dann zog ins Land der März,
Empfindet's doppelt Lust und Weh,
Dann zog die Lieb' ins Herz.

Schwankt an dern Strauch der Rosen Zier,
Dann glüht die Sommerzeit,
Es brachte keiner noch, gleich dir,
Mir solche Seligkeit.

Reift im Geheg die blaue Schleh',
Dann kam der Herbst heran,
Es hat mir keiner noch so weh,
So weh wie du getan.

La première violette apparut

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

La première violette apparut à travers la neige,
Alors le mois de mars arriva dans le pays,
Le plaisir et la douleur sont ressentis doublement,
Alors l'amour arriva dans le cœur.

L'ornement des roses oscillait sur le buisson,
Alors l'été resplendit,
Il ne m'apportait pas, comme toi,
Une telle félicité.

La prunelle bleue mûrissait dans l'enclos,
Alors l'automne approchait,
Cela ne me faisait pas aussi mal,
Aussi mal que tu le faisais.
