An dem jungen Morgenhimmel

Language: German (Deutsch)

An dem jungen Morgenhimmel
Steht die reine Sonne klar,
Aber Blut quillt auf der Wiese,
Und ein Roß, des Reiters baar,
Trabt verschüchtert in der Runde,
Starr steht eine reis'ge Schaar.
Mohrenkönig, bist erschlagen
Von dem tapfern Brüderpaar,
Das Dein kühnes Räuberwagniß
Nahm im grünen Forste wahr!
Donna Clara kniet bei'm Leichnam
Aufgelöst ihr goldnes Haar,
Sonder Scheue nun bekennend,
Wie ihr lieb der Todte war.
Brüder bitten, Priester lehren,
Eins nur bleibt ihr offenbar.
Sonne geht, und Sterne kommen,
Auf und nieder schwebt der Aar,
Alles auf der Welt ist Wandel
Sie allein unwandelbar.
Endlich bau'n die treuen Brüder
Dort Kapell' ihr und Altar,
Betend nun verrinnt ihr Leben,
Tag für Tag und Jahr für Jahr,
Bringt verhauchend sich als Opfer
Für des Liebsten Seele dar.

Don Gayseros III

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Aan de jonge morgenhemel
Staat de zon te stralen klaar,
Maar veel bloed stroomt op de weide,
En een paard - geen ruiter daar -,
Draaft beangstigd in de rondte.
Star staat daar een ruiterschaar.
Morenkoning, je1 bent verslagen
Door het dapp're broederpaar,
Dat jouw drieste roverwaagstuk
Werd in 't groene woud gewaar!
 
Donna Clara knielt bij 't lichaam,
- Losgemaakt haar gouden haar -,
Zonder schaamte nu bekennend
Hoe hij werd bemind door haar.
Broeders smeken, priesters preken,
Eén ding blijft haar zonneklaar.
Zonlicht gaat en sterren komen,
Hoog en laag zweeft d' adelaar,
Alles op de aard' verandert,
Zíj slechts is onwankelbaar.
Later bouwen trouwe broeders
Altaar en kapel voor haar.
Biddend nu verloopt haar leven,
Dag na dag en jaar na jaar.
Kwijnend brengt zij zich ten offer;
Voor zijn ziel valt niets haar zwaar.
