Wie bist du, meine Königin

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

Wie bist du, meine Königin,
Durch sanfte Güte wonnevoll!
Du lächle nur, Lenzdüfte wehn
Durch mein Gemüte, wonnevoll!

Frisch aufgeblühter Rosen Glanz,
Vergleich ich ihn dem deinigen?
Ach, über alles, was da blüht,
Ist deine Blüte wonnevoll!

Durch tote Wüsten wandle hin,
Und grüne Schatten breiten sich,
Ob fürchterliche Schwüle dort
Ohn Ende brüte, wonnevoll!

Laß mich vergehn in deinem Arm!
Es ist ihm ja selbst der Tod,
Ob auch die herbste Todesqual
Die Brust durchwüte, wonnevoll!

Wat ben je toch, mijn koningin

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

Wat ben je toch, mijn koningin,
Door zachte goedheid goddelijk!
Jij glimlacht slechts en lente geurt
Door mijn gedachten, goddelijk!

De glans van rozen, pas ontbloeid,
Is die gelijk de jouwe wel?
Ach, meer dan alles wat daar bloeit
Is jouw ontbloeien goddelijk! 

Door doods woestijnland kun jij gaan
En groene lommer breidt zich uit,
Hoe vreselijke warmte daar
Aanhoudend broeit ook, goddelijk!
 
Laat mij maar doodgaan in jouw arm!
Daarin is mij, ja, zelfs de dood,
Ook als de scherpste pijn des doods
De borst doorsiddert, goddelijk!
