Füllest wieder Busch und Thal

Language: German (Deutsch)

Füllest wieder Busch und Thal
Still mit Nebelglanz,
Lösest endlich auch einmal
Meine Seele ganz;

Breitest über mein Gefild
Lindernd deinen Blick,
Wie des Freundes Auge mild
Ueber mein Geschick.

Jeden Nachklang fühlt mein Herz
Froh- und trüber Zeit,
Wandle zwischen Freud' und Schmerz
In der Einsamkeit.

Fließe, fließe, lieber Fluß!
Nimmer werd' ich froh,
So verrauschte Scherz und Kuß,
Und die Treue so.

Ich besaß es doch einmal,
Was so köstlich ist!
Daß man doch zu seiner Qual
Nimmer es vergißt!

Rausche, Fluß, das Thal entlang,
Ohne Rast und Ruh,
Rausche, flüstre meinem Sang
Melodien zu,

Wenn du in der Winternacht
Wüthend überschwillst,
Oder um die Frühlingspracht
Junger Knospen quillst.

Selig, wer sich vor der Welt
Ohne Haß verschließt,
Einen Freund am Busen hält
Und mit dem genießt,

Was, von Menschen nicht gewußt
Oder nicht bedacht,
Durch das Labyrinth der Brust
Wandelt in der Nacht.

Alla luna

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

Riempi ancora bosco e valle,
in silenzio, di splendore argenteo,
sciogli infine, ancora una volta
tutta la mia anima.

Spandi sulla mia terra,
con forza di pace, il tuo sguardo,
come l'occhio dell'amico, dolce
sul mio destino.

Ogni eco risente il mio cuore
del tempo lieto e triste,
cammino tra gioia e dolore
nella solitudine.

Scorri, scorri, caro fiume!
Mai sarò lieto;
così svanì scherzo e bacio,
e così la fedeltà.

Ma lo possedetti un giorno,
ciò che è così prezioso!
E per il proprio tormento,
non si può dimenticare!

Mormora, fiume, lungo la valle,
senza sosta né pace,
mormora, sussurrando al mio canto
melodie 

quando nella notte d'inverno
irato ti gonfi,
o quando nello splendore primaverile
le tenere gemme spruzzi.

Beato chi dinanzi al mondo 
si nasconde senza odio,
stringe al petto un amico
e con lui si gode

ciò che, ignorato dagli uomini
o non meditato,
per il labirinto del petto
vaga nella notte.
