Über die beglänzten Gipfel

Language: German (Deutsch)

[Über die]1 beglänzten Gipfel
Fernher kommt es wie ein Grüßen,
Flüsternd neigen sich die Wipfel
Als ob sie sich wollten küssen.

Ist er doch so schön und milde!
Stimmen gehen durch die Nacht,
Singen heimlich von dem Bilde -
Ach, ich bin so froh erwacht!

Plaudert nicht so laut, ihr Quellen!
Wissen darf es nicht der Morgen!
In der Mondnacht linde Wellen
Senk ich still mein Glück und Sorgen. -

Per damunt dels cims lluents

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

Per damunt dels cims lluents,
de lluny, arriba com una salutació,
xiuxiuejant les branques es vinclen
com si es volguessin besar.

És tan bonica i agradosa!
Se senten veus en la nit,
canten furtives de l’efígie –
ai, m’he despertat tan joiós!

Vosaltres fonts, no xerreu tan fort!
El matí no ho ha de saber!
En les ones suaus de la nit de lluna
hi enfonso en silenci la meva felicitat i les meves penes.
