So hab ich wirklich dich verloren

Language: German (Deutsch)

So hab ich wirklich dich verloren,
Bist du, o [Schöne]1, mir entflohn?
Noch klingt in den gewohnten Ohren
Ein jedes Wort, ein jeder Ton.

So wie des Wandrers Blick am Morgen
Vergebens in die Lüfte dringt,
[Wenn]2, in dem blauen Raum verborgen,
Hoch über ihm die Lerche singt:

So dringet ängstlich hin und wieder
Durch Feld und Busch und Wald mein Blick;
Dich rufen alle meine Lieder;
O komm, Geliebte, mir zurück!

Aan de vertrokkene

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Dus heb ik werk'lijk je verloren?
Ben jij, o schoonheid, mij ontvlucht?
Steeds meen ik nog jouw stem te horen,
Nog ieder woord, nog elke zucht.

Zoals men, wand'lend in de morgen,
Vergeefs met 't oog de lucht doordringt,
Als in het ruime blauw verborgen,
Hoog boven ons de leeuw'rik zingt:

Zo tracht mijn blik jou weer te vangen
In veld en bos, beangst en vlug;
Om jou roep ik in al, [ja, al] mijn zangen:
O kom, geliefde, naar mij t'rug.
