Rückweg

Language: German (Deutsch)

Zum Donaustrom, zur Kaiserstadt
Geh' ich in Bangigkeit:
Denn was das Leben Schönes hat,
[Entschwindet]1 weit und weit.

Die Berge [weichen]2 allgemach,
Mit ihnen [Thal]3 und Fluß;
Der Kühe Glocken läuten nach,
Und Hütten nicken Gruß.

Was starrt dein Auge thränenfeucht
Hinaus in blaue Fern'?
Ach, dorten weilt ich, unerreicht,
Frey unter Freyen gern!

Wo Liebe noch und Treue gilt,
Da öffnet sich das Herz;
Die Frucht an ihren Strahlen schwillt,
Und strebet Himmelwärts.

Camí de tornada

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

Vers el Danubi, vers la ciutat imperial,
torno ple d’angoixa;
car tot el que de bell té la vida,
s’enfuig cada cop més lluny.

A poc a poc, desapareixen les muntanyes
i amb elles, els rius i les valls;
ressonen les esquelles de les vaques
i les bordes em fan salutacions.

Per què els teus ulls plens de llàgrimes
esguarden vers la blava llunyania?
Ai, allà vaig viure content, inaccessible,
lliure entre els homes lliures!

On encara són vigents l’amor i la fidelitat,
allà s’obren els cors;
la fruita creix sota llurs raigs
i malda vers el cel.
