by Heinrich Heine (1797 - 1856)
Translation by Marc Legrand (1865 - 1908)

Sie haben mich gequälet
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Sie haben mich gequälet,
Geärgert blau und blaß,
Die einen mit ihrer Liebe,
Die andern mit ihrem Haß.

Sie haben das Brot mir vergiftet,
Sie gossen mir Gift ins Glas,
Die einen mit ihrer Liebe,
Die andern mit ihrem Haß.

Doch sie, die mich am meisten
Gequält, geärgert, betrübt,
Die hat mich nie gehasset,
Und hat mich nie geliebt.

L'indifférent
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Ils m'on fait bien du mal
Et j'en guéris à peine,
Les uns par leur amour
Les autres par leur haine.

Empoisonant mon pain,
Troublant ma coupe pleine,
Les uns par leur amour
Les autres par leur haine.

Mais celui qui m'a fait
La plus douleur et peine
Ah! n'a jamais eu pour moi
Ni d'amour ni de haine.
