Keinen Reimer wird man finden

Language: German (Deutsch)

Keinen Reimer wird man finden
Der sich nicht den besten hielte,
Keinen Fiedler, der nicht lieber
Eigne Melodien spielte.

Und ich konnte sie nicht tadeln;
Wenn wir andern Ehre geben,
Müssen wir uns selbst entadeln;
Lebt man denn, wenn andre leben?

Und so fand ich's denn auch juste
In gewissen Antichambern,
Wo man nicht zu sondern wußte
Mäusedreck von Koriandern.

Das Gewesne wollte hassen
Solche rüstge neue Besen,
Diese dann nicht gelten lassen
Was sonst Besen war gewesen.

Und wo sich die Völker trennen
Gegenseitig im Verachten,
Keins von beiden wird bekennen,
Daß sie nach demselben trachten.

Und das grobe Selbstempfinden
Haben Leute hart gescholten,
Die am wenigsten verwinden,
Wenn die andern was gegolten.

No trobareu cap rimaire

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

No trobareu cap rimaire
que no es consideri el millor,
ni tampoc cap violinista que no prefereixi
tocar les seves pròpies melodies.

I no els puc pas blasmar;
quan honorem els altres
ens hem de deshonorar nosaltres;
hom pot viure quan els altres viuen?

I això ho he trobat justament
en certes antecambres
on no sabien distingir
cagarulles de ratolí del coriandre.

Les que ho han estat voldrien menysprear
a les noves, vigoroses cambreres
i aquestes no deixen valer
a les que antigament ho foren.

I allà on els pobles es desuneixen,
menyspreant-se mútuament,
cap d’ells voldrà admetre
que tots desitgen el mateix.

I aquest barroer amor propi
ha estat severament condemnat
per aquells que menys toleren
que els altres es facin valer.
