Du weinst, - ich weiß.
Und da möchte ich weinen
zu deinem Preis.
Mit der Stirne auf Steinen
weinen ... ...
Deine Hände sind heiß;
Könnt ich Tasten darunterschieben,
dann wäre dir doch ein Lied geblieben.
Aber die Stunde stirbt ohne Vermächtnis ... ...

Tu piangi, - lo so.
Come vorrei piangere anch'io
in tua lode.
Con la fronte sul marmo poggiata
Piangere ... ...
Hai così calde le mani;
potessi farle scorrere sui tasti
allora ne ricaveresti un canto.
Ma l'ora muore e non rimane niente ... ...
