Horch! horch! die Lerch' im Ätherblau

Language: German (Deutsch) after the English

Horch! horch! die Lerch' im Ätherblau;
Und Phöbus, neu erweckt,
Tränkt seine Rosse mit dem Thau,
Der Blumenkelche deckt;
Der Ringelblume Knospe schleußt
Die goldnen Äuglein auf;
Mit allem, was da reizend [heißt]1,
Du süße Maid, steh auf!
Steh auf! steh auf!

Confirmed with Schauspiele von William Shakspeare [sic] übersezt von Heinrich Voß und Abraham Voß. Erster Theil. Tübingen in der J. G. Cotta'schen Buchhandlung. 1810, page 173; with William Shakspeare's sämmtliche dramatische Werke übersetzt im Metrum des Originals. XXVI. Bändchen. Cymbelin, von A.W.Schlegel. Wien. Druck und Verlag von J. P. Sollinger. 1825, page 33; and with William Shakspeare's sämmtliche dramatische Werke und Gedichte. Uebersetzt im Metrum des Originals in einem Bande nebst Supplement, [...] Wien. Zu haben bei Rudolph Sammer, Buchhändler. Verlegt bei J. P. Sollinger, 1826, page 606.

Note: The poem is Cloten's song in Cymbelin, act 2, scene 3. The German translation is by Abraham Voß (brother of Heinrich Voß and son of Johann Heinrich Voß), as is being explained in the preamble of their 1810 book. This translation has been adopted by A. W. Schlegel in the complete edition of his Shakespeare translations, without giving credit to the actual translator. In fact, the 1826 edition specifies A. W. Schlegel as the translator.

Note: When Schubert's song was published posthumously in 1832 (Philomele eine Sammlung der beliebtesten Gesänge mit Begleitung des Pianoforte eingerichtet und herausgegeben von Anton Diabelli. No. 294), the editor commissioned Friedrich Reil to create two additional stanzas which were then carried over by Max Friedlaender into his Schubert Album (Peters Edition).

Escolta, escolta, l'alosa en el blau de...

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

Escolta, escolta, l'alosa en el blau de l'èter!
I Febus, de nou desvetllat,
remulla els seus corsers amb la rosada
que cobreix els calzes de les flors.
La poncella de la calèndula obre
els seus ulls daurats;
amb tot això que és tan encisador,
tu, dolça donzella, 
lleva't!
