Es tanzen Mond und Sterne

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es tanzen Mond und Sterne
Den flücht'gen Geisterreih'n:
Wer wird von Erdensorgen
Befangen immer seyn!
Du kannst in Mondesstrahlen
Nun, meine Barke, wallen;
Und aller Schranken los,
Wiegt dich des Meeres Schooß.
Vom Markusthurme tönte
Der Spruch der Mitternacht:
Sie schlummern friedlich Alle,
Und nur der Schiffer wacht.

La luna y las estrellas bailan

Language: Spanish (Español) after the German (Deutsch)

La luna y las estrellas bailan
La ronda pasajera de los espiritus.
Quien quisiera ser prisionero
De preocupaciones terrenales?
Ahora, mi barca, tu puedes vagar
A la luz de la luna
Libre de toda atadura,
Te meces sobre el pecho del mar.
De la torre de San Marco
Suena el anuncio de la medianoche;
Todos duermen en paz
Y sólo el barquero despierta.
