Im morgen‑taun
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Im morgen-taun
Trittst du hervor
Den kirschenflor
Mit mir zu schaun ·
Duft einzuziehn
Des rasenbeetes.
Fern fliegt der staub ..
Durch die natur
Noch nichts gediehn
Von frucht und laub –
Rings blüte nur ...
Von süden weht es.

Dans la rosée du matin
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Dans la rosée du matin tu sors
pour regarder avec moi le cerisier en fleurs,
et pour respirer le parfum de l'herbe.
Au loin s'envole la poussière...
À travers la nature, rien encore ne pousse,
fruit ou feuille -
tout autour seulement des fleurs...
Du sud le vent souffle.
