Dies zu deuten bin erbötig!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Hatem
 Dies zu deuten bin erbötig!
 Hab ich dir nicht oft erzählt,
 Wie der Doge von Venedig
 Mit dem Meere sich vermählt?

 So von deinen Fingergliedern 
 Fiel der Ring dem Euphrat zu.
 Ach, zu tausend [Himmelsliedern]1,
 Süßer Traum, begeisterst du!

 Mich, der von des Indostanen
 Streifte bis Damaskus hin, 
 Um mit neuen Karawanen
 Bis ans rote Meer zu ziehn,

 Mich vermählst du deinem Fluße,
 Der Terrasse diesem Hain:
 Hier soll bis zum letzten Kuße
 Dir mein Geist gewidmet sein.

Sono pronto a spiegarlo

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)

Hatem:
 Sono pronto a spiegarlo!
 Non ti ho a volte raccontato
 come il Doge di Venezia
 celebrava le nozze col mare?

 Così dalle tue dita
 l'anello toccò in sorte all'Eufrate.
 Ah, mille celestiali canti,
 dolce sogno, mi ispiri tu!

 Me che dall'Indostan
 sono andato vagando fino a Damasco,
 per ripartire con nuove carovane
 verso il Mar Rosso,

 Me ora tu sposi al tuo fiume,
 alla terrazza, al boschetto,
 qui sia, fino all'ultimo bacio,
 a te consacrato il mio spirito.
