Les sanglots longs
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): ENG ENG ENG GER GER GER HUN HUN ITA
Les sanglots longs
Des violons
   De l'automne
Blessent mon cœur
D'une langueur
   Monotone.

Tout suffocant
Et blême, quand
   Sonne l'heure,
Je me souviens
Des jours anciens
   Et je pleure ;

Et je m'en vais
Au vent mauvais
   Qui m'emporte
Deçà, delà,
Pareil à la
   Feuille morte.

Őszi gordon
Language: Hungarian (Magyar)  after the French (Français) 
Őszi gordon
Búja zordon
	Dallamon
Száll szívemre
Egy ónszürke
	Hajnalon.

Leszek hóka
És béna, ha
	Óra jő,
Számos éven
S múlt emléken
	Könnyező;

És elmennék,
Ha lenne szél,
	Ki elhord
Erre, arra,
Mint avarra
	Hulló port.
