Verschwiegene Liebe
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE FRE ITA POR
Über Wipfel und Saaten
In den Glanz hinein -
Wer mag sie erraten,
Wer holte sie ein?
Gedanken sich wiegen,
Die Nacht ist verschwiegen,
Gedanken sind frei.

Errät' es nur eine,
Wer an sie gedacht
Beim Rauschen der Haine,
Wenn niemand mehr wacht
Als die Wolken, die fliegen -
Mein Lieb ist verschwiegen
Und schön wie die Nacht.

Amour taciturne
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Au-dessus des cimes et des semailles,
dans leur propre luminescence,
qui peut les deviner, 
qui peut les rattraper ?
Les pensées se bercent, 
la nuit se tait,
les pensées sont libres.

Et l’unique, devinerait-elle
les pensées qui s’envolent vers elle
comme des nuages
dans le bruissement du bosquet, 
quand plus personne ne veille ?
Mon amour est aussi taciturne
et splendide que la nuit.
