Träume

Language: German (Deutsch)

Sag, welch wunderbare Träume
Halten meinen Sinn umfangen,
Daß sie nicht wie leere Schäume
Sind in ödes Nichts vergangen?

Träume, die in jeder Stunde,
Jedem Tage schöner blühn,
Und mit ihrer Himmelskunde
Selig durchs Gemüte ziehn!

Träume, die wie hehre Strahlen
In die Seele sich versenken,
Dort ein ewig Bild zu malen:
Allvergessen, Eingedenken!

Träume, wie wenn Frühlingssonne
Aus dem Schnee die Blüten küßt,
Daß zu nie geahnter Wonne
Sie der neue Tag begrüßt,

Daß sie wachsen, daß sie blühen,
Träumend spenden ihren Duft,
Sanft an deiner Brust verglühen,
Und dann sinken in die Gruft.

Somnis

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

Digues, quins somnis meravellosos
els meus sentits empresonen,
sense que, com vàcua escuma
en el no-res s'esvaeixin? 

Somnis, que cada moment,
cada dia, més bells esclaten,
i amb llur celestial proclama
travessen joiosament el meu esperit. 

Somnis, que com raigs sublims
penetren dins l'ànima,
per deixar-hi una imatge perdurable:
oblit de tot, record d'un mateix! 

Somnis, que quan el sol de primavera
besa les flors eixides de la neu,
pugui així el nou dia saludar-les
amb una joia mai sentida. 

Que creixin i floreixin,
i, bo i somniant, el seu perfum expandeixin,
que en el teu pit dolçament es marceixin
i, després, en la tomba s'enfonsin.
