Abschied

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ade, Du muntre, Du fröhliche Stadt, Ade!
Schon scharret mein Rösslein mit lustigem Fuß;
Jetzt nimm [meinen]1 letzten, den scheidenden Gruß.
Du hast mich wohl [nimmermehr]2 traurig gesehn,
So kann es auch jetzt nicht beim Abschied geschehn.
Ade, Du muntre, Du fröhliche Stadt, Ade!

Ade, Ihr Bäume, Ihr Gärten so grün, Ade! 
Nun reit' ich am silbernen Strome entlang,
Weit schallend ertönet mein Abschiedsgesang;
Nie habt Ihr ein [klagendes]3Lied gehört,
So wird Euch auch keines beim Scheiden beschert.
Ade, Ihr Bäume, Ihr Gärten so grün, Ade!

Ade, Ihr freundlichen [Mägdelein]4 dort, Ade!
Was schaut Ihr aus blumenumduftetem Haus
Mit schelmischen, lockenden Blicken heraus?
Wie sonst, so grüß' ich und schaue mich um,
Doch [nimmermehr]5 wend' ich mein [Rösselein]6 um.
Ade, Ihr freundlichen [Mägdelein]4 dort, Ade!

Ade, liebe Sonne, so gehst Du zur Ruh, Ade!
Nun schimmert der blinkenden Sterne Gold.
Wie bin ich Euch Sternlein am Himmel so hold;
[Durchziehen die Welt wir]7 auch weit und breit,
Ihr gebt überall uns das treue Geleit.
Ade, liebe Sonne, so gehst Du zur Ruh, Ade!

Ade, Du schimmerndes Fensterlein hell, Ade!
Du glänzest so traulich mit dämmerndem Schein,
Und ladest so freundlich ins Hüttchen uns ein.
Vorüber, ach, ritt ich so manches mal
Und wär' es denn heute zum letzten mal?
Ade, Du schimmerndes Fensterlein hell, Ade!

Ade, Ihr Sterne, verhüllet Euch grau! - Ade!
Des [Fensterleins]8 trübes verschimmerndes Licht
Ersetzt Ihr unzähligen Sterne mir nicht;
Darf ich hier nicht weilen, muß hier vorbei,
Was hilft es [mir]9, folgt Ihr mir noch so treu!
Ade, Ihr Sterne, verhüllet Euch grau! - Ade!

고별

Language: Korean (한국어/조선말) after the German (Deutsch)

안녕! 즐겁게 지낸 마을아, 안녕!
경쾌한 말발굽 소리 들으며
마지막 인사 남기며 떠나네.
슬픈 얼굴을 보인 적 없으니
기쁜 표정만 지으며 떠나리.

안녕! 푸른 정원과 나무들, 안녕!
은빛 시냇물 따라서 달리네.
작별의 노래 저 멀리 울리며.
슬픈 노래는 부른 적 없으니
기쁜 곡조만 남기며 떠나리.

안녕! 다정했던 아가씨들, 안녕!
아름다운 꽃 가득 핀 집에서
왜 유혹하는 눈으로 날 보나?
어찌 모른 체 할 수 있으랴.
그래도 멈추진 않으리.

안녕! 태양아, 너 이제 쉬어라, 안녕!
금빛 별들이 반짝거리리.
별들은 언제나 다정했었지.
세상 끝까지 어디든지
함께 친구가 되어 다녔었지.

안녕! 불 켜진 작은 창문아,  안녕!
희미한 불빛 정겹게 보이네
들어오라고 손짓을 하는 듯.
저 너머, 아, 말달려 다닌 곳
오늘이 마지막이 되려나?

안녕! 별들아, 베일 내려라, 안녕!
깜빡이는 창, 희미한 등불을
별들이 밝혀줄 수 없으리니.
머물 수 없는 곳,  떠나 가네.
내 뒤를 따라 무엇 하리!
