Ich stand in dunkeln Träumen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich stand in [dunkeln]1 Träumen
Und [starrte]2 ihr Bildniß an,
Und das geliebte Antlitz
Heimlich zu leben begann.
 
Um ihre Lippen zog sich
Ein Lächeln wunderbar,
Und wie von Wehmuthsthränen
Erglänzte ihr Augenpaar.
 
Auch meine Thränen flossen
Mir von den Wangen herab - 
Und ach, ich [kann es]3 nicht glauben,
Daß ich Dich verloren hab'!

Estava immers en obscures vagueries

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

Estava immers en obscures vagueries
i mirava el seu retrat,
llavors el seu estimat rostre
prengué vida misteriosament.

En els seus llavis es dibuixà
un meravellós somriure
i, com de llàgrimes de melangia,
brillaren els seus ulls.

A mi també, les llàgrimes
em queien per les galtes --
i ai las! A penes em puc creure 
que t'he perdut!
