Der jagt dahin, daß die Rosse schnaufen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der jagt dahin, daß die Rosse schnaufen,
Der muß im Staub daneben laufen;
Aber die Nacht holt beide ein,
Setzt jenen im Traum neben die Rosse
Und den andern in seine Karosse -
Wer fährt nun fröhlicher? Der da wacht,
Oder der blinde Passagier bei Nacht?

"Consolazione" dalle "Rime spirituali"

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

Là uno guida la caccia, affannando i cavalli,
a un altro tocca di corrergli appresso nel polverone,
ma entrambi sono colti dalla notte
e uno sogna disteso vicino ai cavalli
l'altro sta dentro la sua carrozza.
Chi sarà nel viaggio più felice? Chi sta sveglio,
o il passeggero cieco nella notte?
