Dioskuren, Zwillingsterne

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dioskuren, [Zwillingsterne]1,
Die ihr leuchtet meinem Nachen,
Mich beruhigt auf dem Meere
Eure Milde, euer Wachen.

Wer auch, fest in sich begründet,
Unverzagt dem Sturm begegnet;
Fühlt sich doch in euren Strahlen
Doppelt muthig und gesegnet.

Dieses Ruder, das ich schwinge,
Meeresfluthen zu zertheilen;
Hänge ich, so ich geborgen,
Auf an eures Tempels Säulen.

Confirmed with Gedichte von Johann Mayrhofer. Wien. Bey Friedrich Volke. 1824, page 183.

Note: Schubert received Mayrhofer's texts in handwriting; the manuscripts of his cycle Heliopolis, dedicated to Franz von Schober, are preserved in the Vienna City Library. The printed edition of Mayrhofer's poems appeared much later. This poem (originally no. 20 of the cycle) is not part of the cycle in the printed edition of 1843.

Dioscuri, gemine stelle

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

Dioscuri, gemine stelle
che fate luce alla mia navicella,
mi infonde calma sul mare
il vostro favore, la vostra protezione.

Anche chi ha in sé la propria forza,
e senza timore va incontro alla tempesta,
si sente comunque dai vostri raggi
doppiamente incoraggiato e benedetto.

Questo remo, che muovo,
per fendere i flutti del mare,
lo appendo, per essere protetto,
alle colonne del vostro tempio.
