Roß! Mein Roß! Was schleigst du so träg! (Waldemar)

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Danish (Dansk)

Waldemar:
 Roß! Mein Roß! Was schleichst du so träg!
 Nein, ich seh's, es flieht der Weg
 hurtig unter der Hufe Tritten.
 Aber noch schneller mußt du eilen,
 bist noch in des Waldes Mitten,
 und ich wähnte, ohn' Verweilen
 sprengt' ich gleich in Gurre ein.
 Nun weicht der Wald, schon seh' ich dort die Burg,
 die Tove mir umschließt, indes im Rücken uns der Forst
 zu finstrem Wall zusammenfließt;
 aber noch weiter jage du zu!
 Sieh! Des Waldes Schatten dehnen
 über Flur sich weit und Moor!
 Eh' sie Gurres Grund erreichen,
 muß ich stehn vor Toves Tor.
 Eh' der Laut, der jetzo klinget,
 ruht, um nimmermehr zu tönen,
 muß dein flinker Hufschlag, Renner,
 über Gurres Brücke dröhnen;
 eh' das welke Blatt - dort schwebt es -,
 mag herab zum Bache fallen,
 muß in Gurres Hof dein Wiehern
 fröhlich widerhallen!
 Der Schatten dehnt sich, der Ton verklingt,
 nun falle, Blatt, magst untergehn:
 Volmer hat Tove gesehn!

Cavall! Cavall meu! Per què vas tan...

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

Waldemar
 Cavall! Cavall meu! Per què vas tan ronser!
 No, ho veig, el camí s'esmuny
 prest sota la guitza de les teves peülles.
 Però encara has de córrer més,
 som encara al mig del bosc
 i jo creia que, sense aturar-me,
 ja estaria entrant a Gurre.
 Ara el bosc s'aclareix i allà veig el castell
 que guarda la meva Tove.
 Mentrestant, darrera nostre, el boscatge
 es confon amb un mur de foscúria;
 però segueix galopant encara!
 Mira! Les ombres del bosc s'estenen
 lluny per camps i aiguamolls!
 Abans que arribin a les terres de Gurre, 
 haig de ser a la porta de Tove.
 Abans que el so que ara dringa
 s'aturi i no torni a ressonar mai més,
 els teus àgils bitzacs, corser,
 han de retrunyir damunt del pont de Gurre;
 abans que la fulla seca -- que penja allà dalt --
 pugui caure al rierol,
 al pati de Gurre, els teus renills,
 han de ressonar alegrament...
 Les ombres s'allargassen, el dring s'amorteix,
 cau fulla, ara pots davallar:
 Volmer ha vist a Tove!
