Sternchen mit dem trüben Schein

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

Sternchen mit dem trüben Schein,
Könntest du doch weinen!
Hättest du ein Herzelein,
O, du gold'nes Sternlein mein,
Möchtest Funken weinen.

Weintest mit mir, weintest laut
Nächte durch voll Leiden,
Daß sie mich vom Liebsten traut,
Um das Gold der reichen Braut
Mich vom Liebsten scheiden.

L'oro pesa più dell'amore

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

Stellina dalla luce tremula,
potessi tu piangere!
Avessi un cuore,
tu stellina mia d'oro,
piangeresti lacrime di luce.

Piangeresti con me, piangeresti forte,
tutte le notti piene di dolore,
perché dal mio caro fedele,
per la dote della sposa ricca,
mi hanno separato dal mio amore.
