Die Flamme hier, die wilde, zu verhehlen

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

Die Flamme hier, die wilde, zu verhehlen,
Die Schmerzen alle, welche mich zerquälen,
Vermag ich es, da alle Winde ringsum
Die Gründe meiner Traurigkeit erzählen?

Daß ich ein Stäubchen deines Weges stäube,
Wie magst du doch, o sprich, wie darfst du schmählen?
Verklage dich, verklage das Verhängnis,
Das waltet über alle Menschenseelen!

Da selbiges verordnete, das ew'ge,
Wie alle sollten ihre Wege wählen,
Da wurde deinem Lockenhaar der Auftrag,
Mir Ehre, Glauben und Vernunft zu stehlen.

Liefdesvuur

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

De vuurgloed hier, de wilde, te verbergen,
De pijnen alle, die mij hevig kwellen,
Lukt mij dat wel, nu alle winden om mij
De gronden van mijn treurigheid vertellen?
 
Dat ik een stofje van jouw pad wil blazen,
Hoe kun je toch, o spreek, hoe mag je smalen?
Klaag aan jezelf, en klaag maar aan het noodlot
Dat macht heeft over mensen t’ enen male!
 
Toen zelf het ooit verordende, het eeuw’ge,
Hoe allen zelf hun wegen moeten kiezen,
Toen gaf het aan jouw prachtig haar de opdracht:
Doe ‘m aanzien, godsvrucht en verstand verliezen.
