Bientôt l'île bleue et joyeuse
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): ENG GER
Bientôt l'île bleue et joyeuse
Parmi les rocs m'apparaîtra ;
L'île sur l'eau silencieuse
Comme un nénuphar flottera.

A travers la mer d'améthyste
Doucement glisse le bateau,
Et je serai joyeux et triste
De tant me souvenir -- bientôt.

Bald wird zwischen den Felsen
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the French (Français) 
Bald wird zwischen den Felsen 
das blaue, unbeschwerte Eiland mir erscheinen;
es treibt auf stiller See,
der Wasserrose gleich.

Durchs amethystfarbene Meer
gleitet sanft mein Boot,
und heiter, traurig werd’ ich sein
ob vielem, das ich bald erinnre.
