Frühzeitiger Frühling

Language: German (Deutsch)

Tage der Wonne,
Kommt ihr so bald?
Schenkt mir die Sonne
Hügel und Wald?
 
Reichlicher fließen
Bächlein zumal,
Sind es die Wiesen?
Ist es das Thal?
 
Blauliche Frische!
Himmel und Höh!
Goldene Fische
Wimmeln im See.
 
Buntes Gefieder
Rauschet im Hain;
Himmlische Lieder
Schallen darein.
 
Unter des Grünen
Blühender Kraft,
Naschen die Bienen
Summend am Saft.
 
Leise Bewegung
Bebt in der Luft,
Reizende Regung
Schläfernder Duft.
 
Mächtiger rühret
Bald sich ein Hauch,
Doch er verlieret
Gleich sich im Strauch.
 
Aber zum Busen
Kehrt er zurück,
Helfet, ihr Musen,
Tragen das Glück!
 
Saget seit gestern
Wie mir geschah?
Liebliche Schwestern,
Liebchen ist da!

Πρώιμη άνοιξη

Language: Greek (Ελληνικά) after the German (Deutsch)

Μέρες λαχτάρας,
Είστε κοντά;
Θα δουν λιακάδα
Δάση, βουνά;
 
Πλούσια κυλάνε
Οι ποταμοί.
Είν’ οι κοιλάδες;
Είν’ οι αγροί;
 
Νιότη γαλάζια
Θάλλει ψηλά!
Λίμνη με ψάρια,
Σμήνη χρυσά.
 
Φυλλοθροΐζουν
Δάσους πουλιά
Και τιτιβίζουν
Αγγελικά.
 
Μες στου πρασίνου
Όργιο ανθών,
Μέλισσες πίνουν
Γύρης χυμό.
 
Κάτι σαλεύει,
Πάνω σκιρτά,
Μ’ άρωμα θέλγει,
Μέθη σκορπά.
 
Λίγο ξεδίνει
Μια άχνα δειλά,
Μα πάλι σβήνει
Στη φυλλωσιά.
 
Όμως στα στήθια
Ξαναγυρνά.
Μούσες, βοήθεια,
Πνίγει η χαρά.
 
Τι μου συνέβη,
Πέστε, αδελφές,
Η λατρεμένη
Φάνηκε χθες!
