Der Herbstwind rüttelt die Bäume

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Herbstwind rüttelt die Bäume,
Die Nacht ist feucht und kalt;
Gehüllt im grauen Mantel
Reite ich einsam im Wald.

Und wie ich reite, so reiten
Mir die Gedanken voraus;
Sie tragen mich leicht und luftig
Nach meiner Liebsten Haus.

Die Hunde bellen, die Diener
Erscheinen mit Kerzengeflirr;
Die Wendeltreppe stürm' ich
Hinauf mit Sporengeklirr.

Im leuchtenden Teppichgemache,
Da ist es so duftig und warm,
Da harret meiner die Holde,
Ich fliege in ihren Arm.

Es säuselt der Wind in den Blättern,
Es spricht der Eichenbaum:
Was willst Du, törichter Reiter,
Mit deinem törichten Traum?

El vent de la tardor

Language: Catalan (Català) after the German (Deutsch)

El vent del la tardor sacut els arbres;
    la nit és molla i freda.
    Emboçat en ma capa,
    cruso a cavall la selva.

Mentres cavalco, al davant meu galopen
    mos pensaments alegres,
i alegrament me porten a la casa
    de l’estimada meva.

Lladren els gossos; els criats acuden
    amb antorxes enceses
i, fent trincar els esperons, me’n pujo
    per l’escala de pedra.

Dintre una cambra entapissada i clara,
    ben perfumada i tèbia,
m’espera mon amor. Entre sos braços,
    me rebato amb delera.

El vent rondinava entre el fullam. Les branques
    del roure xerrotegen:
“on vas, foll cavaller?, què vols, què logres
    amb tes boges quimeres?”
