by Eduard Mörike (1804 - 1875)

Kein Schlaf noch kühlt das Auge mir
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE FRE ITA SPA
Kein Schlaf noch kühlt das Auge mir,
Dort gehet schon der Tag herfür
An meinem Kammerfenster.
Es wühlet mein verstörter Sinn
Noch zwischen Zweifeln her und hin
Und schaffet Nachtgespenster.
-- Ängste, quäle
Dich nicht länger, meine Seele!
Freu' dich! Schon sind da und dorten
Morgenglocken wach geworden.

A l'aube
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Nul sommeil n'est encore venu rafraîchir mes paupières,
que déjà le jour se lève
à la fenêtre de ma chambre.
Mon esprit troublé
est en proie à mille incertitudes
et fabrique des cauchemars.
--Ne t'inquiète plus, 
ne te torture pas davantage, mon âme !
Réjouis toi ! Déjà ça et là
les cloches du matin se sont éveillées.
