Original text and translations

French.png French text

Calmes des nuits, fraîcheur des soirs,
Vaste scintillement des mondes,
Grand silence des antres noirs
Vous charmez les âmes profondes.
L'éclat du soleil, la gaité,
Le bruit plaisent aux plus futiles;
Le poète seul est hanté
Par l'amour des choses tranquilles.

English.png English translation

Stillness of the night, cool of the evening,
Vast shimmering of the spheres,
Great silence of black vaults
Deep thinkers delight in you.
The bright sun, merriment,
And noise amuse the more frivolous;
Only the poet is possessed
By the love of quiet things.

Italian.png Italian translation

Calma delle notti,
Freschezza delle sere,
Vasto ondeggiamento dei mondi,
Grande silenzio delle caverne nere,
Incantate i cuori profondi.
L'abbaglio del sole, la gaité,
Il rumore soddisfano i più inutili;
Il poeta solo è abitato
Dall'amore delle cose calme.

German.png German translation

Stille der Nacht, Kühle des Abends,
Funkeln der Sterne, Lautlosigkeit dunkler Höhlen,
ihr bezaubert die empfindsamen Seelen.
Der grelle Glanz der Sonne
und die lärmende Heiterkeit
sind das Vergnügen der Oberflächlichen.
Allein der Dichter ist beherrscht
von der Liebe zu den ruhigen Dingen.
