Du, trüber Nebel, hüllest mir

Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE
Du, trüber Nebel, [hüllest]1 mir
Das Tal mit seinem Fluß,
Den Berg mit seinem Waldrevier,
[Und]2 jedem Sonnengruß.

Nimm fort in deine graue Nacht
Die Erde weit und breit!
Nimm fort, was mich so traurig macht,
Auch die Vergangenheit.

Brouillard
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Trouble brouillard, tu me voiles
La vallée et sa rivière,
La montagne aux pentes boisées
Et chaque salut du soleil.

Fais disparaître dans ta nuit grise
Toute l'étendue de la terre,
Fais disparaître ce qui me rend si triste,
Et aussi le passé.
