Ueber meines Liebchens Aeugeln

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ueber meines Liebchens Aeugeln
Stehn verwundert alle Leute;
Ich, der Wissende, dagegen
Weiß recht gut was das bedeute.

Denn es heißt: ich liebe diesen,
Und nicht etwa den und jenen.
Lasset nur ihr guten Leute
Euer Wundern, euer Sehnen!

Ja, mit ungeheuren Mächten
Blicket sie wohl in die Runde;
Doch sie sucht nur zu verkünden
Ihm die nächste süße Stunde.

Il segreto

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

 Dinanzi all'occhieggiar della mia amata
 ogni persona si meraviglia. 
 Io, l'esperto, invece
 so bene come ciò si spiega. 

 Perché vuol dire: io amo questo
 e non chiunque, non quello o l'altro ancora. 
 Lasciate perdere, brava gente,
 la vostra ammirazione, le vostre brame! 

 Sì, col suo immenso potere
 lei si guarda bensì tutt'attorno;
 ma intende solo annunciare,
 a lui, la prossima ora più dolce.
