Available translation(s): ENG FRE ITA
Schweigt der Menschen laute Lust:
Rauscht die Erde wie in Träumen
Wunderbar mit allen Bäumen,
Was dem Herzen kaum bewusst,
Alte Zeiten, linde Trauer,
Und es schweifen leise Schauer
Wetterleuchtend durch die Brust.

Le soir
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Le bruyant plaisir des hommes se tait :
La terre, comme en rêve, bruit
Merveilleusement de tous ses arbres,
Ce qu'à peine le cœur perçoit,
Temps passés, douce tristesse,
Et de légers frissons parcourent
La poitrine comme un éclair de chaleur.
