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, Erde schweigt und...

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

Nunmehr da Himmel, Erde schweigt und Winde,
Gefieder, Wild, des Schlummers Bande tragen,
Die Nacht im Kreise führt den Sternenwagen,
Und still das Meer sich senkt in seine Gründe:

Nun wach' ich, [sinne, glühe, wein',]1 und finde
Nur sie, die mich verfolgt mit süßen Plagen.
Krieg ist mein Zustand, Zorn und Mißbehagen;
Nur, denk' ich sie, winkt Friede mir gelinde.

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

Und daß mein Leiden nie ein Ziel [erwerbe]2,
Sterb' und ersteh' ich täglich tausend Male;
So weit entfernt noch bin ich zu gesunden.

Confirmed with Blumensträusse italiänischer, spanischer und portugiesischer Poesie von August Wilhelm Schlegel. Berlin. In der Realschulbuchhandlung. 1804, page 51. The name "Gries" appears beneath the translation.

Note: Schlegel included in his Blumensträusse, along with his own translations, four translations of Petrarca's sonnets by Johann Diederich Gries. These were republished, in revised versions, in Gedichte und poetische Übersetzungen von J. D. Gries, Stuttgart, 1829.
