Auf dem Krankenbette
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Gleichwie ein Vogel am Fenster vorbei mit sonnebeglaenztem
Fluegel den blitzenden Schein wirft in ein schattig Gemach,
Also, mitten im Gram um verlorene Jahre des Siechbetts,
Überraschet und weckt leuchtende Hoffnung mich oft.

Malade sur le lit
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Qu'un oiseau passe dans l'éclat du soleil devant ma fenêtre,
Son aile jetant une lumière éclatante dans la chambre ombreuse,
Alors au milieu du chagrin après des années perdues sur un lit de mort,
Souvent une lumineuse espérance me surprend et me réveille.
