Mein Wagen rollet langsam

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mein Wagen rollet langsam
Durch lustiges Waldesgrün,
Durch blumige Taler, die zaubrisch
Im Sonnenglanze blühn.

Ich sitze und sinne und träume,
Und denk' an die Liebste mein;
Da grüßen drei Schattengestalten
Kopfnickend zum Wagen herein.

Sie hüpfen und schneiden Gesichter,
So spöttisch und doch so scheu,
Und quirlen wie Nebel zusammen,
Und kichern und huschen vorbei.

Mijn wagen hobbelt langzaam

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Mijn wagen hobbelt langzaam
Door 't bos, op de groene baan,
Door dalen vol bloemen, die prachtig
In de1 zon te bloeien staan.
 
Ik zit maar en peins maar en droom maar,
En denk aan mijn hartsvriendin;
Daar werpen drie schaduwgestalten
Een knikgroet de wagen plots in.
 
Zij hupp'len en trekken gezichten,
Zo spottend, maar schuw, onvrij,
En werv'len als nevels tezamen
En giech'len en glippen voorbij.
