Rückblick

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es brennt mir unter beiden Sohlen,
Tret' ich auch schon auf Eis und Schnee.
Ich möcht' nicht wieder Athem holen,
Bis ich nicht mehr die Thürme seh'.

Hab' mich an [jedem]1 Stein gestoßen,
So eilt' ich zu der Stadt hinaus;
Die Krähen warfen Bäll' und Schloßen
Auf meinen Hut von jedem Haus.

Wie anders hast du mich empfangen,
Du Stadt der Unbeständigkeit!
An deinen blanken Fenstern sangen
Die Lerch' und Nachtigall im Streit.

Die runden Lindenbäume blühten,
Die klaren Rinnen rauschten hell,
Und ach, zwei Mädchenaugen glühten! -
Da war's geschehn um dich, Gesell!

Kömmt mir der Tag in die Gedanken,
Möcht' ich noch einmal rückwärts sehn,
Möcht' ich zurücke wieder wanken,
Vor ihrem Hause stille stehn.

Weromsjen

Language: Frisian after the German (Deutsch)

Al wrakselj' ik troch iis en snie,
de fuotten stean mij  yn 'e brân.
Ik flechtsje fuort, ik fiel ferrie,
ik haw it net mear foar 't ferstân.

Ik stroffelje oer losse stiennen,
sa hastich gie ik út de stêd;
De roeken smite hagelstiennen
fan elts hûs ôf, bopp' op myn pet.

Hoe oars hast do mij wolkom hjitten,
do stêd; sa ritich as it waar. 
En sjongend yn de beammen sitte,
de ljurk en geal mei har ferhaal.

De folle linebeammen bloeiden,
it held're wetter streamde fûl,
Mar o, dy eagen fan har gloeiden, -
Myn freon, dat rekke it gefoel!

Komt mij dy dei wer yn gedachten,
wol ik noch ienris nei har gean.
Ik wol wol krûpend, kin net wachtsje,
en (stil) swijend foar har glêzen stean.
