Die Winde sausen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Winde sausen
Am Tannenhang,
Die Quellen brausen
Das Thal entlang;
Ich [wandr’]1 in Eile
Durch Wald und Schnee,
Wohl manche Meile
Von Höh zu Höh.
 
Und will das Leben
Im freien Thal
Sich auch schon heben
Zum Sonnenstrahl;
Ich muß vorüber
Mit wildem Sinn
Und blicke lieber
Zum Winter hin.
 
Auf grünen Haiden,
Auf bunten Au'n,
Müßt’ ich mein Leiden
Nur immer schaun,
Daß selbst am Steine
Das Leben sprießt,
Und ach! nur Eine
[Ihr]2 Herz verschließt.
 
O Liebe, Liebe,
O Mayenhauch!
Du drängst die Triebe
Aus Baum und Strauch;
Die Vögel singen
[Auf grünen Höhn]3;
Die Quellen springen
Bei deinem Wehn!
 
Mich läßt du schweifen
Im [dunklen]4 Wahn
Durch Windespfeifen
Auf rauher Bahn.
O [Frühlingsschimmer]5,
O [Blüthenschein]6,
Soll ich denn nimmer
Mich dein erfreun?

Over Wildemann1

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

De winden suizen 
door 't hellingwoud
De bronnen ruisen, 
het dal is koud.
Ik kan hier niet wijlen, 
loop zonder stop
Besneeuwde mijlen, 
berg af berg op.
 
Al tracht het leven 
in 't open dal
Omhoog te streven 
naar 't zonlicht al,
Ik moet naar ginder 
in wilde drang,
't Is naar de winter 
dat ik verlang.
 
Op groene heiden, 
in 't bonte veld
Word ik door 't lijden 
constant gekweld,
Dat zelfs uit stenen 
het leven spruit,
Terwijl die ene haar 
hart afsluit.
 
O liefdedromen, 
o voorjaarswind,
Jij perst de bomen, 
het botten begint,
De vogels zingen 
daarginds in 't groen,
De bronnen springen 
door jouw gezoen.
 
Mij drijf je buiten, 
vol sombere waan,
De winden fluiten, 
ruw is mijn baan.
O lentetooitijd, 
o bloeifestijn,
Zul jij dan nooit mij 
tot vreugde zijn?
