Und du kamest in mein Haus

Language: German (Deutsch)

Und du kamest in mein Haus,
kamst mit deinen schwarzen Blicken;
sah ich ferne Palmen nicken
und du gabst mir deinen Strauß.

Gabst die zitternden Narzissen,
die wir in der [Wüste]1 pflückten.
Deine schwarzen Locken schmückten
meines Divans rote Kissen.

Kehre wieder in mein Haus,
laß die wilden Blumen blühen,
unsre junge Lippen glühen,
Gib mir, gib mir deinen Strauß!

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.

Donne‑moi !

Language: French (Français)

Et tu vins dans ma maison,
vins avec ton regard noir ;
je vis de lointaines palmes se courber
et tu me donnas ton bouquet.

Tu donnas le narcisse tremblant,
que nous avions cueilli dans l'ivresse.
Tes boucles noires ornaient
les rouges coussins de mon divan.

Reviens dans ma maison
fais fleurir les fleurs sauvages,
briller nos jeunes lèvres,
Donne-moi, donne-moi ton bouquet !
