Bei dem angenehmsten Wetter

Language: German (Deutsch)

Bei dem angenehmsten Wetter
singen alle Vogelein,
klatscht der Regen auf die Blätter,
sing ich so für mich allein.

Denn mein Aug' kann nichts entdecken,
wenn der Blitz auch grausam glüht,
was im Wandern könnt' erschrecken
ein zufriedenes Gemüt.

Frei vom Mammon will ich schreiten
auf dem Feld der Wissenschaft,
sinne ernst und nehm' zu Zeiten 
einen Mund voll Rebensaft.

Bin ich müde vom Studieren,
wann der Mond tritt sanft herfür,
pfleg' ich dann zu musizieren 
vor der Allerschönsten Tür.

Quando il tempo si mostra ridente

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

Quando il tempo si mostra ridente
Tutti gli uccelli levano il loro canto,
ma se la pioggia scroscia sulle piante
allora canto per me soltanto.
E ai miei occhi nulla potrebbe apparire,
Quand'anche il fulmine ardesse pauroso,
tale da potere arrecare timore
a chi procede con animo lieto.
Libero da Mammone voglio andare avanti,
per apprendere, lungo il mio cammino,
con animo serio,ma pure, in certi momenti,
pronto a una bella bevuta di vino.
E se sarò stanco di studiare,
quando dolce la luna rischiara,
allora è il momento di mettermi a suonare
davanti alla porta di lei, la più cara.
