Traum durch die Dämmerung

Language: German (Deutsch)

Weite Wiesen im Dämmergrau;
die Sonne verglomm, die Sterne ziehn,
nun geh' [ich]1 zu der schönsten Frau,
weit über Wiesen im Dämmergrau,
tief in den Busch von Jasmin.

Durch Dämmergrau in der Liebe Land;
ich gehe nicht schnell, ich eile nicht;
mich zieht ein weiches samtenes Band
durch Dämmergrau in der Liebe Land,
in ein [mildes, blaues]2 Licht.

Somni a través del capvespre

Language: Catalan (Català) after the German (Deutsch)

Vastes prades en la grisor del capvespre;
el sol s’apaga, arriben les estrelles,
jo vaig ara vers la més bella de les dones,
lluny, a través de prades en la grisor del capvespre,
pel fons de matolls de llessamí.

Per la grisor del capvespre vers el país de l’amor;
no camino amb rapidesa, no tinc cap pressa;
m’arrossega una suau cinta de vellut
per la grisor del capvespre vers el país de l’amor, 
amb una tènue, blavosa llum.
