Van li effluvi de le rose da i verzieri

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Van li effluvi de le rose da i verzieri,
de le corde van le note de l'amore,
lungi van per l'alta notte
piena d'incantesimi.

L'aspro vin di giovinezza brilla ed arde
ne le arterie umane: reca l'aura a tratti
un tepor voluttuoso
d'aliti feminei.

Spiran l'acque a i solitari lidi; vanno,
van li effluvî de le rose da i verzieri,
van le note de l'amore
lungi e le meteore.

Es wehen die Düfte der Rosen aus dem Hausgarten

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

Es wehen die Düfte der Rosen aus dem Hausgarten
Wenn die  von Ferne
Herüber klingenden Liebeslieder
die Nacht verzaubern.

Ungestüm  kommt  die glänzende glutvolle Jugend daher
Und lässt aus dem menschlichen Stamm von Zeit zu Zeit
Einen Hauch  warmer Wollust hervorbrechen
Flüsternd von Weiblichkeit.

Weht über die Wasser an einsame Strände; geht dahin
Es wehen die Düfte der Rosen aus dem Hausgarten,
es klingen die Liebeslieder herüber
von ferne wie Meteore.
