Erstarrung

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich such' im Schnee vergebens
Nach ihrer Tritte Spur,
[Hier, wo wir oft gewandelt
Selbander durch die]1 Flur.

Ich will den Boden küssen,
Durchdringen Eis und Schnee
Mit meinen heißen Thränen,
Bis ich die Erde seh'.

Wo find' ich eine Blüthe,
Wo find' ich grünes Gras?
Die Blumen sind erstorben,
Der Rasen sieht so blaß.

Soll denn kein Angedenken
Ich nehmen mit von hier?
Wenn meine Schmerzen schweigen,
Wer sagt mir dann von ihr?

Mein Herz ist wie [erfroren]2,
Kalt starrt ihr Bild darin:
Schmilzt je das Herz mir wieder,
Fließt auch [das]3 Bild dahin.

Congelación

Language: Spanish (Español) after the German (Deutsch)

En vano busco en la nieve
las huellas de sus pasos,
cuando ella de mi brazo
cruzaba el verde prado.

Quisiera besar el suelo, 
penetrar hielo y nieve 
con mis ardientes lágrimas, 
hasta ver la tierra. 

¿En dónde encontraré una flor, 
en dónde hierba verde? 
Las flores están muertas 
y el prado está marchito. 

¿No he de llevarme pues
de aquí ningún recuerdo?
¿Si mis dolores callan,
quién me hablará de ella?

Mi corazón está helado
y fría en él su imagen; 
si el corazón se fundiese,
su imagen también se esfumaría.
