Lune malade
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): ENG
O Lune, nocturne phtisique,
Sur le noir oreiller des cieux,
Ton immense regard fièvreux
M'attire comme une musique!

Tu meurs d'un amour chimérique,
Et d'un désir silencieux,
O Lune, nocturne phtisique,
Sur le noir oreiller des cieux!

Mais 'dans sa volupté physique
L'amant qui passe insoucieux
Prend pour des rayons gracieux
Ton sang blanc et mélancolique,
O Lune, nocturne phtisique!

Du nächtig todeskranker Mond
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the French (Français) 
Available translation(s): CHI ENG FRE ITA NYN
Du nächtig todeskranker Mond
Dort auf des Himmels schwarzem Pfühl,
Dein Blick, so fiebernd übergroß,
Bannt mich wie fremde Melodie.

An unstillbarem Liebesleid
Stirbst du, an Sehnsucht, tief erstickt,
Du nächtig todeskranker Mond
Dort auf des Himmels schwarzem Pfühl.

Den Liebsten, der im Sinnenrausch
Gedankenlos zur Liebsten schleicht,
Belustigt deiner Strahlen Spiel -
Dein bleiches, qualgebornes Blut,
Du nächtig todeskranker Mond.
