Der Einsame im Herbst

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

Herbstnebel wallen bläulich überm See;
Vom Reif bezogen stehen alle Gräser;
Man meint', ein Künstler habe Staub vom Jade
Über die feinen Blüten ausgestreut.

Der süße Duft der Blumen is verflogen;
Ein kalter Wind beugt ihre Stengel nieder.
Bald werden die verwelkten, goldnen Blätter
Der Lotosblüten auf dem Wasser ziehn.

Mein Herz ist müde. Meine kleine Lampe
Erlosch mit Knistern;
es gemahnt mich an den Schlaf.
Ich komm zu dir, traute Ruhestätte!
Ja, gib mir Ruh, ich hab Erquickung not!

Ich weine viel in meinen Einsamkeiten.
Der Herbst in meinem Herzen währt zu lange.
Sonne der Liebe, willst du nie mehr scheinen,
Um meine bittern Tränen mild aufzutrocknen?

Il solitario in autunno

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

La nebbia autunnale vaga azzurra sul lago
E l'erba è ricoperta di brina;
Come se un artista avesse cosparso
Polvere di giada sulle tenere piante.

E' svanito il dolce aroma dei fiori;
un freddo vento piega i loro steli.
Presto,appassiti, i petali d'oro del loto
Vagheranno galleggiando sull'acqua.

Stanco è il mio cuore. La mia piccola luce
Si è spenta crepitando;
è tempo di dormire.
E io vengo a te, fedele rifugio di pace!
Sì, dammi pace, ho bisogno di conforto!

Io piango spesso nella mia solitudine.
Troppo  indugia l'autunno nel mio cuore.
Sole dell'amore, non vuoi più risplendere,
per asciugare delicatamente le mie lacrime amare?
