Herzeleid

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Weiden lassen matt die Zweige hangen,
Und traurig ziehn die Wasser hin:
Sie schaute starr hinab mit bleichen Wangen,
Die unglückselge Träumerin.

Und ihr entfiel ein Strauss von Immortellen,
Er war so schwer von Tränen ja,
Und leise warnend lispelten die Wellen:
Ophelia, Ophelia!

Hartsverdriet

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

De wilgen laten mat de takken hangen,
En treurig stroomt het water heen;
Zij staarde strak omlaag, met bleke wangen:
Nooit haar gedroomd geluk verscheen.
 
En haar ontviel een bosje immortellen,
Het was zo zwaar van tranen, ja.
De golfjes bleven zacht vermanend wellen:
Ophelia, Ophelia!
