Available translation(s): FRE
Immer stiller stehn die Bäume,
nicht ein Blatt mehr scheint zu leben,
und ich fühle Wüstenträume
durch den bangen Mittag beben,

bis ins bange Blut mir zittern,
bis ins Herz, wie Feuerpfeile.
O, ich lechze nach Gewittern!
Komm, Geliebte! eile! eile!

Appel
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Les arbres sont encore calmes,
Pas une feuille ne semble vivre,
et je sens des rêves stériles
trembler dans le midi craintif,

frissonner jusque dans mon sang apeuré,
jusque dans mon cœur, comme une flèche de feu.
Ô je désire ardemment l'orage !
Viens mon amour ! vite ! vite !
