Ich ruhe still im hohen grünen Gras
Und sende lange meinen Blick nach oben,
Von Grillen rings umschwirrt ohn Unterlaß,
Von Himmelsbläue wundersam umwoben.

[Und schönen weiße]1 Wolken ziehn dahin
Durchs tiefe Blau, wie schöne stille Träume;
Mir ist, als ob ich längst gestorben bin
Und ziehe selig mit durch ew'ge Räume.

Seul dans les champs
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Je me repose dans l'herbe haute et verte
Et regarde longtemps en l'air,
Entouré de grillons qui ne s'arrêtent jamais,
Enveloppé merveilleusement de ciel bleu.

Les adorables nuages blancs sont entraînés
À travers le bleu profond, comme des beaux rêves silencieux ;
Je me sens comme si j'étais mort depuis longtemps
Et entraîné bienheureux à travers l'espace éternel.
