An des lustgen Brunnens Rand

Language: German (Deutsch)

Suleika
 An des lustgen Brunnens Rand,
 Der in Wasserfäden spielt,
 Wußt ich nicht, was fest mich hielt;
 Doch da war von deiner Hand
 Meine Chiffer leis gezogen,
 Niederblickt ich, dir gewogen.

 Hier, am Ende des Kanals
 Der gereihten Hauptallee,
 Blick ich wieder in die Höh,
 Und da seh ich abermals
 Meine Lettern fein gezogen:
 Bleibe! bleibe mir gewogen!

Hatem
 Möge Wasser springend, wallend
 Die Zypressen dir gestehn:
 Von Suleika zu Suleika
 Ist mein Kommen und mein Gehn.

Suleika and Hatem

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Suleika:
 By the edge of the merry fountain
 where filaments of water play,
 I did not know what was holding me there;
 but there, by your hand,
 my name had been tenderly written;
 I gazed down, thinking of you with fondness.
 
 Here, at the end of the canal,
 on the main avenue, lined with trees,
 I look up into the heights
 and there I see once again
 my letters finely traced.
 Stay, stay fond of me!
 
Hatem:
 May the water leape and seethe,
 and the cypresses avow to you:
 From Suleika to Suleika
 is my coming and my going.
