Vor Edens Tor im Morgenprangen

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Vor Edens Tor im Morgenprangen
 Stand eine Peri schmerzbefangen:
 Und wie sie lauscht dem Lebensquelle,
 Des Flut harmonisch drinnen hallte,
 Und wie vom Licht ihr Fittich helle,
 Das durch halboffne Pforten wallte:
 Weint sie, verbannt aus diesen Au'n,
 Ihr sündiges Geschlecht zu schaun.

Language: Spanish (Español) after the German (Deutsch)

 Ante la puerta del Paraíso, en el esplendor matinal,
 estaba una Peri transida de dolor.
 Escuchaba la fuente de la vida, 
 cuyas ondas armónicas sonaban, 
 y sus luminosas blancas alas
 movía por la puerta entreabierta. 
 Lloraba, expulsada de esas praderas,
 considerando su pecador linaje.
