Abendbilder

Language: German (Deutsch)

Still beginnt's im Hain zu thauen;
Ruhig webt der Dämm'rung Grauen
Durch die Gluth
Sanfter Fluth,
Durch das Grün umbüschter Auen,
So die trunk'nen Blicke schauen.

Sieh'! der Raben Nachtgefieder
Rauscht auf ferne Eichen nieder. -
Balsamduft
Haucht die Luft;
Philomelens Zauberlieder
Hallet zart die Echo wieder.

Horch! des Abendglöckleins Töne
Mahnen ernst der Erde Söhne,
Daß ihr Herz
Himmelwärts,
Sinnend ob der Heimath Schöne,
Sich des Erdentands entwöhne.

Durch der hohen Wolken Riegel
Funkeln tausend Himmelssiegel,
Luna's Bild
Streuet mild
In der Fluthen [klaren]1 Spiegel
Schimmernd Gold auf Flur und Hügel.

Von des Vollmonds Wiederscheine
Blitzet das bemooste kleine
Kirchendach.
Aber ach!
Ringsum decken [kühle Steine]2
Der Entschlummerten [Gebeine]3.

Ruht, o Traute! von den Wehen,
Bis beym großen [Auferstehen]4
Aus der Nacht
Gottes Macht
Einst uns ruft, in seiner Höhen
Ew'ge Wonnen einzugehen.

Imatges de capvespre

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

Silenciosament comença a caure la rosada al boscatge,
tranquil•lament la grisor del crepuscle
s’enllaça amb la vermellor
i les aigües calmes,
a través del verd de les prades envoltades de matolls,
així ho contemplen els esguards embriagats.

Mira! El plomatge dels corbs, negre com la nit,
remoreja sota roures llunyans.
Una flaire balsàmica
alena a l’aire;
els cants màgics de Filomela,
tendrament els fa ressonar l’eco.

Escolta! El toc de les campanes al vespre,
severes, recorden als fills de la terra,
que llur cor
adreçant-se al cel,
hauria de reflectir la bellesa del país
i desavesar-se de les foteses del món.

Travessant la barrera de núvols alts,
centellegen milers de senyals celestials,
la imatge de la lluna
es difon plàcidament
en el nítid mirall de les aigües,
amb àuria resplendor, damunt camps i tossals.

Amb el reflex de la lluna plena
brilla, coberta de molsa,
la petita teulada de l’església.
Però ai!
Tot al voltant, fredes làpides
cobreixen les restes dels difunts.

Reposeu, oh estimats, dels vostres sofriments
fins a la gran resurrecció
de la nit,
el poder de Déu,
un dia ens cridarà per entrar
a les altures del goig etern.
