Geliebter, wo zaudert

Language: German (Deutsch)

Geliebter, wo zaudert
Dein irrender Fuß?
Die Nachtigall plaudert
Von Sehnsucht und [Kuß]1.

Es flüstern die Bäume
Im goldenen Schein,
Es schlüpfen mir Träume
Zum Fenster [herein]2.

Ach! kennst du das Schmachten
Der klopfenden Brust?
Dies Sinnen und Trachten
Voll Qual und voll Lust?

Beflügle die Eile
Und rette mich dir,
Bei nächtlicher Weile
Entfliehn wir von hier.

Die Segel, sie schwellen,
Die Furcht ist nur Tand:
Dort, jenseit den Wellen
Ist väterlich Land.

Die Heimat entfliehet; --
So fahre sie hin!
Die Liebe, sie ziehet
Gewaltig den Sinn.

Horch! wollüstig klingen
Die Wellen im Meer,
Sie hüpfen und springen
Mutwillig einher,

Und sollten sie klagen?
Sie rufen nach dir!
Sie wissen, sie tragen
Die Liebe von hier.

Amato mio, dove indugia

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

Amato mio, dove indugia
Il tuo passo vagante?
L'usignolo canta
di nostalgia e di baci.
 
Stormiscono gli alberi
Nella luce dorata,
Si insinuano i sogni
attraverso la finestra.
 
Ah! Conosci i sospiri
Del petto ansimante?
Questi pensieri, queste aspirazioni
Pieni di tormento e di desiderio?
 
Dai ali alla foga,
salvami per te,
nell'ora notturna
fuggiamo da qui.
 
Si gonfiano le vele,
è stupido aver paura;
laggiù al di là delle onde
c'è il paese natio.
 
La patria si allontana,
raggiungila allora!
L'amore trascina,
Con forza, i pensieri.
 
Ascolta! Gioiose risuonano
Le onde del mare,
si agitano e incalzano
balzando in avanti,
 
dovrebbero piangere?
Invocano te!
Sanno che lontano
Condurranno l'amore.
