Herbstsonnenschein. Der liebe Abend blickt so still herein. Ein Feuerlein rot Knistert im Ofenloch und loht. So, mein Kopf auf deinen Knie'n, So ist mir gut. Wenn mein Auge so in deinem ruht, Wie leise die Minuten zieh'n.

Éclat du soleil d'automne. L'adorable soir regarde si calmement dedans. Un petit feu rouge Crépite dans le fourneau et flambe. Ainsi avec ma tête sur tes genoux C'est agréable pour moi. Quand mes yeux reposent ainsi dans les tiens, Avec quelle douceur les minutes passent.
