O Frühlingsabenddämmerung!
O laues, lindes Weh'n,
Ihr Blütenbäume, sprecht, was tut

Vertraut ihr das Geheimnis euch
Von uns'rer Liebe süß?
Was flüstert ihr ein ander zu
Von uns'rer Liebe süß?

Secret
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Ô crépuscule du printemps !
Ô brises tièdes et douces,
Arbres en fleurs, parlez, que faites-vous
Si près les uns des autres ?

Vous confiez-vous le secret
De notre doux amour ?
Que vous chuchotez-vous
Sur notre doux amour ?
