Über allen Zauber Liebe

Language: German (Deutsch)

Sie hüpfte [vor]1 mir auf grünem Plan,
Und sah die [fahlenden]2 Linden an
Mit trauernden Kindesaugen;
"Die stillen Lauben sind entlaubt,
Die Blumen hat der Herbst geraubt,
Der Herbst will gar nichts taugen.
Ach, du bist ein schönes Ding,
Frühling!3
Ueber allen Zauber Frühling."

Das zierliche Kind, wie's vor mir schwebt!
Aus Lilien und Rosen zart gewebt,
Mit Augen gleich den Sternen; -
"Blüht mir dein holdes Angesicht,
Dann mag, fürwahr ich zage nicht,
Der Mayen sich entfernen.
Färbet nur des Lebens Trübe
Liebe:
Ueber allen Zauber Liebe."

Meer dan alle schoonheid: liefde

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

Zij hupte met mij op de groene baan
En zag de gélende linden staan
Met droevige kinderogen;
De tuinprieeltjes zijn ontloofd,
De bloemen heeft de herfst geroofd,
De herfst moest dit niet mogen.
Ach, je bent een heerlijk ding,
Lente, Lente!
Meer dan alle schoonheid: Lente.
 
Het sierlijke kind, zo in mijn geest!
Met leliën en rozen teer bevleesd,
Met ogen klaar als sterren;
Zie ik jouw lieflijk aangezicht,
Dan kan, voorwaar, dit zeg ik licht,
De Mei zich houden verre.
Ach, één ding kleurt slechts 's levens grauwheid:
Liefde, Liefde!
Meer dan alle schoonheid: Liefde.
