Wir saßen so traulich beisammen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wir saßen so traulich beisammen
Im kühlen Erlendach,
Wir schauten so traulich zusammen
Hinab in den rieselnden Bach.

Der Mond war auch gekommen,
Die Sternlein hinterdrein,
Und schauten so traulich zusammen
In den silbernen Spiegel hinein.

Ich sah nach keinem Monde,
Nach keinem Sternenschein,
Ich schaute nach ihrem Bilde,
Nach ihren Augen allein.

Und sahe sie nicken und blicken
Herauf aus dem seligen Bach,
Die Blümlein am Ufer, die blauen,
Sie nickten und blickten ihr nach.

Und in den Bach versunken
Der ganze Himmel schien,
Und wollte mich mit hinunter
In seine Tiefe ziehn.

Und über den Wolken und Sternen
Da rieselte munter der Bach,
Und rief mit Singen und Klingen:
Geselle, Geselle, mir nach!

Da gingen die Augen mir über,
Da ward es im Spiegel so kraus;
Sie sprach: Es kommt ein Regen,
Ade, ich geh' nach Haus.

Pioggia di lacrime

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

 Come ci piaceva stare insieme,
 seduti nel fresco boschetto di ontani,
 come ci piaceva guardare insieme
 giù nel ruscello che scorreva.

 La luna s'era levata,
 col suo seguito di stelle,
 e guardavamo insieme - come ci piaceva! -
 giù nello specchio d'argento.

 Io non vedevo nessuna luna,
 nessun brillare di stelle,
 guardavo solo lei,
 solo i suoi occhi.

 E la vidi chinarsi a guardare
 sull'amabile ruscello;
 i fiori sulla riva, i fiori celesti,
 si chinavano a guardare come lei.

 E sembrava sprofondato nel ruscello
 tutto il cielo
 e voleva trascinarmi giù
 nella sua profonda corrente.

 E sopra le nubi e le stelle
 scorreva allegro il ruscello
 e diceva, col suo canto e suono:
 "Amico, amico, vieni con me!"

 Allora mi si annebbiarono gli occhi,
 lo specchio diventò confuso;
 lei disse: "Viene la pioggia,
 addio, io torno a casa."
