Waldseligkeit
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE IRI SPA
Der Wald beginnt zu rauschen,
den Bäumen naht die Nacht,
als ob sie selig lauschen,
berühren sie sich sacht.

Und unter ihren Zweigen,
da bin ich ganz allein,
da bin ich ganz mein eigen :
ganz nur Dein!

Confirmed with Richard Dehmel, Gesammelte Werke in drei Bände, Erster Band, S. Fischer Verlag, Berlin, 1920, Erlösungen, page 55.

Felicidad del bosque
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the German (Deutsch) 
 El bosque empieza a susurrar,
 la noche se acerca a los árboles;
 como si escuchasen felices,
 se rozan suavemente.

 Allí, bajo sus ramas,
 estoy completamente solo,
 allí soy totalmente mío:
 totalmente, y solamente tuyo.
