Die Flur will ruhn.
In Halmen, Zweigen
ein leises Neigen.
Dir ist, als hörst du
die Nebel steigen.

Du horchst - und nun:
dir wird, als störst du
mit deinen Schuhn
ihr Schweigen.

Voix du soir
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
La campagne va dormir.
Brindilles, rameaux
légèrement inclinés.
C'est comme si l'on entendait
monter le brouillard.

Tu écoutes -- et alors
c'est comme si
de tes chaussures
tu troublais son silence.
