In des Sees Wogenspiele

In der Seele Wogenspiele
Fallen aus des Himmels Pforten
Sterne, ach, gar viele, viele.

Près du lac
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Dans le jeu des vagues du lac
À travers la lumière du soleil tombent
Les étoiles, hélas, si nombreuses,
Étincelant sans cesse.

Si l'homme devient un lac,
Dans le jeu des vagues de l'âme
Tombent des portes du ciel
Les étoiles, hélas, si nombreuses.
