Wenn du nur zuweilen lächelst
Language: German (Deutsch) after the Persian (Farsi)
Wenn du nur zuweilen lächelst,
Nur zuweilen Kühle fächelst
Dieser ungemeßnen Glut -
In Geduld will ich mich fassen
Und dich alles treiben lassen,
Was der Liebe wehe tut.

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)
Se solamente di tanto in tanto sorridessi,
Recando solo allora un soffio di frescura
Su questo smisurato ardore --
Allora mi rassegnerei paziente
E ti lascerei fare
Tutto ciò che fa male all'Amore.
