Frühzeitiger Frühling

Language: German (Deutsch) after the 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 Tal?

Unter des Grünen
Blühender Kraft
Naschen die Bienlein
Summend vom Saft.
Buntes Gefieder
Rauschet im Hain,
Himmlische Lieder
Schallen darein!

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!

Leise Bewegung
Bebt in der Luft,
Reizende Regung
Schläfernder Duft.
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;
 
Μες στου πρασίνου
Όργιο ανθών,
Μέλισσες πίνουν
Γύρης χυμό.
Φυλλοθροΐζουν
Δάσους πουλιά
Και τιτιβίζουν
Αγγελικά.
 
Λίγο ξεδίνει
Μια άχνα δειλά,
Μα πάλι σβήνει
Στη φυλλωσιά.
Όμως στα στήθια
Ξαναγυρνά.
Μούσες, βοήθεια,
Πνίγει η χαρά.
 
Κάτι σαλεύει,
Πάνω σκιρτά,
Μ’ άρωμα θέλγει,
Μέθη σκορπά.
Τι μου συνέβη,
Πέστε, αδελφές,
Η λατρεμένη
Φάνηκε χθες!
