Or che 'l ciel e la terra e 'l vento...

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Or che 'l ciel e la terra e 'l vento tace,
E le fere e gli augelli il sonno affrena,
Notte il carro stellato in giro mena
E nel suo letto il mar senz'onda giace;

Vegghio, penso, ardo, piango; e chi mi sface
Sempre m'è inanzi per mia dolce pena:
Guerra è il mio stato, d'ira et di duol piena;
E sol di lei pensando ho qualche pace.

Così sol d'una chiara fonte viva
Move 'l dolce e l'amaro ond'io mi pasco;
Una man sola mi risana e punge.

E perchè 'l mio martìr non giunga a riva,
Mille volte il dì moro e mille nasco;
Tanto da la salute mia son lunge!

Nunmehr, da Himmel, Erd' und Winde...

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Nunmehr, da Himmel, Erd' und Winde schweigen,
Gefieder, Wild, des Schlummers Bande tragen,
Die Nacht im Kreise führt den Sternenwagen,
Des Meeres Wellen sich zur Ruhe neigen:

Nun wach' ich, sinne, glüh' und wein', alleigen
Dem, der mich stets verfolgt mit süßen Plagen.
Krieg ist mein Zustand, Zorn und Mißbehagen;
Nur, denk' ich sie, will Friede mir sich zeigen.

So strömt, was mich ernährt, das Süß' und Herbe
Aus eines einz'gen Quells lebend'gem Strahle;
Dieselbe Hand giebt Heilung mir und Wunden.

Und daß mein Leiden nie ein Ziel erwerbe,
Sterb' und ersteh' ich täglich tausend Male;
So weit entfernt noch bin ich, zu gesunden.
