Mit Regen und Sturmgebrause
Sei mir willkommen, Dezembermond,
Und führ mich den Weg zum traulichen Hause,
Wo meine geliebte Herrin wohnt.

Nie hab' ich die Blüte des Maien,
Den blauenden Himmel, den blitzenden Tau
So fröhlich gegrüßt wie heute dein Schneien,
Dein Nebelgebräu und Wolkengrau.

Denn durch das Flockengetriebe,
Schöner, als je der Lenz gelacht,
Leuchtet und blüht der Frühling der Liebe
Mir heimlich nun in der Winternacht.

Notte invernale

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)

Fra pioggia e fragore di tempesta
sii benvenuta, luna di dicembre,
guidami pure verso la casa amica
dove la mia amata dimora.

I fiori di maggio
il cielo azzurro, la rugiada luccicante,
non furono mai benvenuti come oggi le tue nevi,
le vaporose nebbie, le scure nubi.

Perché nel turbinio dei fiocchi,
più bella del sorriso della primavera,
riluce e fiorisce la primavera dell'amore,
tutta per me, in segreto, nella notte invernale.
