Wehe, Lüftchen, lind und lieblich

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Persian (Farsi)

Wehe, Lüftchen, lind und lieblich
Um die Wange der Geliebten, 
Spiele zart in ihrer Locke,
Eile nicht hinwegzufliehn!
Tut sie dann vielleicht die Frage,
Wie es um mich Armen stehe;
Sprich: »Unendlich war sein Wehe,
Höchst bedenklich seine Lage;
Aber jetzo kann er hoffen,
Wieder herrlich aufzuleben,
Denn du, Holde, denkst an ihn.«


Translation(s): DUT ENG ENG FRE

Waai maar, windje, licht en lieflijk

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

Waai maar, windje, licht en lieflijk,
Om de wang van mijn geliefde,
Speel maar zachtjes in haar lokken,
Vlieg niet weg, trek aan je rem!
Gaat zij dan misschien je vragen,
Hoe voor mij toch zijn de tijden,
Zeg: “Oneindig was zijn lijden;
Hij had waarlijk veel te dragen.
Maar van nu af kan hij hopen
Toch weer heerlijk op te leven,
Want jij, lieve, denkt aan hem.”
