Auf hohem Bergesrücken

Language: German (Deutsch)

Auf [hohem]1 Bergesrücken,
Wo frischer Alles grünt,
In's [Land]2 hinabzublicken,
Das nebelleicht zerrinnt -
Erfreut den Alpenjäger.
Je steiler und je schräger
Die Pfade sich verwinden,
Je mehr Gefahr aus Schlünden,
So freyer schlägt die Brust.

Er ist der fernen Lieben,
Die ihm daheim geblieben,
Sich seliger bewußt.

Und ist er nun am Ziele:
So drängt sich in der Stille
Ein süßes [Bildniß]3 vor;
Der Sonne goldne Strahlen,
Sie weben und sie mahlen,
Die er im Thal erkor.

El cazador de los Alpes

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

En las altas crestas de las montañas,
donde todo verdea más fresco,
mirando hacia los campos abajo
a través de la ligera niebla que se desvanece,
se deleita el cazador de los Alpes. 

Cuanto más empinadas e inclinadas,
las sendas que supera,
cuanto más peligrosas las gargantas,
más libre late su corazón.
Piensa con gran felicidad
en su lejano amor, 
que permanece en el hogar. 

Y cuando ha llegado a la meta,
en la calma, estrecha
una dulce imagen suya.
Los rayos dorados del sol
tejen y pintan la imagen
de aquélla que ha elegido en el valle.
