Wie Melodien zieht es

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie Melodien zieht es
Mir leise durch den Sinn,
Wie Frühlingsblumen blüht es,
Und schwebt wie Duft dahin.

Doch kommt das Wort und faßt es
Und führt es vor das Aug',
Wie Nebelgrau erblaßt es
Und schwindet wie ein Hauch.

Und dennoch ruht im Reime
Verborgen wohl ein Duft,
Den mild aus stillem Keime
Ein feuchtes Auge ruft.

Come una melodia

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

Come una melodia qualcosa
di lieve mi passa per la mente, 
sboccia come un fiore a primavera
e come un profumo si diffonde.
 
Poi viene la parola e la prende
E me la porta davanti agli occhi,
allora impallidisce come nebbia grigia
e svanisce in un soffio.
 
E tuttavia nel mio verso riposa
Celata come un qualche profumo,
che da un germoglio nascosto
invocano piano occhi di pianto.
