Language: German (Deutsch)

Des Vogels Aug verschleiert sich;
Er sinkt in Schlaf auf seinem Baum.
Der Wald verwandelt sich in Traum
Und wird so tief und feierlich.

Der Mond, der stille, steigt empor:
Die kleine Kehle zwitschert matt.
Im ganzen Walde schwingt kein Blatt.
Fern läutet, fern, der Sterne Chor.

Bosc de somni

Language: Catalan (Català) after the German (Deutsch)

Els ulls de l'ocell es tanquen;
s'adorm en el seu arbre.
El bosc es transforma en somni
i esdevé profund i solemne.

La lluna, silenciosa s'enlaira:
la petita gorja refila esllanguida.
A tot el bosc no belluga cap fulla.
Lluny, lluny sona el cor de les estrelles.
