Des Fischers Liebesglück

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dort blinket
Durch Weiden,
Und winket
Ein Schimmer
Blaßstrahlig
Vom Zimmer
Der Holden mir zu.
 
Es gaukelt
Wie Irrlicht,
Und schaukelt
Sich leise
Sein Abglanz
Im Kreise
Des [schwankenden]1 See's.
 
Ich schaue
Mit Sehnen
In's Blaue
Der Wellen,
Und grüße
Den hellen,
Gespiegelten Strahl.
 
Und springe
Zum Ruder,
Und schwinge
Den Nachen
Dahin auf
Dem flachen,
Krystallenen Weg.
 
Fein-Liebchen
Schleicht traulich
Vom Stübchen
Herunter,
Und sputet
Sich munter
Zu mir in das Boot.
 
Gelinde
Dann treiben
Die Winde
[Uns wieder
See-einwärts
Vom Flieder
Des Ufers hindann]2.
 
Die blassen
Nachtnebel
Umfassen
Mit Hüllen
Vor Spähern
Den stillen,
Unschuldigen Scherz.
 
Und tauschen
Wir Küsse,
So rauschen
Die Wellen
Im Sinken
Und Schwellen,
Den Horchern zum Trotz.
 
Nur Sterne
Belauschen
Uns ferne,
Und baden
Tief unter
Den Pfaden
Des gleitenden Kahn's.
 
So schweben
Wir selig,
Umgeben
Vom Dunkel,
Hoch überm
Gefunkel
Der Sterne [einher]3.
 
Und weinen
Und lächeln,
Und meinen,
Enthoben
Der Erde,
Schon oben,
Schon drüben zu seyn.

La benaurança d’amor del pescador

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

Allà resplendeix
a través de les prades
i em fa senyals
un besllum
esblaimat
des de la cambra
de la meva estimada.

Voleteja
com un foc follet
i es balanceja
sense fer fressa,
el seu reflex
en el cercle
del llac fluctuant.

Jo esguardo
amb anhel
el blau 
de les ones
i saludo
el lluminós
raig reflectit.

I salto
als rems
i faig moure
la barca
cap allí, damunt
la planera
ruta cristal•lina.

La meva xamosa estimada
s’esquitlla cordial
de la petita cambra
cap avall
i s’apressa
alegra
al meu envers a la barca.

Llavors, suaument,
ens empeny
el vent
de nou
llac endins,
lluny dels lilàs
de la riba.

El pàl•lid
boirim de la nit
ens oculta,
amb el seu vel,
de qui potser sotjaria
el silenciós 
joc innocent.

I bescanviem
besades
mentre mormolen
les ones
pujant
i baixant
a despit dels tafaners.

Tan sols les estrelles
ens sotgen
de lluny,
semblen rabejar-se
al fons,
sota el rastre
de la barca que llisca.

Així, feliços,
surem
envoltats
de foscúria,
amunt, vers
el centelleig
de les estrelles.

I plorem
i riem
i ens creiem
deslliurats
de la terra,
de ser ja allà dalt,
de ser ja al més enllà.
