Wir wandelten

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Hungarian (Magyar)

Wir wandelten, wir zwei zusammen,
ich war so still und du so stille,
ich gäbe viel, um zu erfahren,
was du gedacht in jenem Fall.

Was ich gedacht, unausgesprochen verbleibe das!
Nur Eines sag' ich:
So schön war alles, was ich dachte,
so himmlisch heiter war es all'.

In meinem Haupte die Gedanken, 
sie läuteten wie gold'ne Glöckchen:
so wundersüß, so wunderlieblich 
ist in der Welt kein and'rer Hall.

Wij wandelden

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

Wij wandelden, wij twee tezamen,
Ik was zo stil en jij zo zwijgzaam,
‘k Zou geven veel, om te vernemen
Wat jij toen dacht, op dat moment.
 
Wat ik toen dacht, onuitgesproken moet blijven dat!
Slechts één ding zeg ik:
Zo mooi was alles wat ik dacht toen,
Zo hemels vrolijk, ongekend.
 
Mijn hoofd was vol van die gedachten,
Zij klingelden als gouden klokjes:
Zo wonderzoet, zo wonderlieflijk
Is mij op aard geen klank bekend.
