Allnächtlich im Traume seh' ich dich

Language: German (Deutsch)

Allnächtlich im Traume seh' ich dich
Und sehe dich freundlich grüßen,
Und laut aufweinend stürz' ich mich
Zu deinen süßen Füßen.

Du [siehst]1 mich an wehmütiglich
Und schüttelst das blonde Köpfchen;
Aus deinen Augen schleichen sich  
Die Perlentränentröpfchen.

Du [sagst]2 mir heimlich ein leises Wort
Und gibst mir den Strauß von Zypressen.
Ich wache auf, und der Strauß ist fort,
[Und das]3 Wort hab' ich vergessen.

Totes les nits et veig en somnis

Language: Catalan (Català) after the German (Deutsch)

Totes les nits et veig en somnis
i et veig saludar-me amistosament,
i plorant fort em llanço
als teus bonics peus.

Tu em mires malenconiosa
i bellugues el teu petit cap ros;
dels teus ulls s'escapen
llàgrimes com perles.

D'amagat, em dius baixet una paraula
i em dónes un ram de xiprer.
Em desperto i el ram ja no hi és
i he oblidat la paraula.
