Der Jäger

Language: German (Deutsch)

Drei Tage Regen fort und fort,
Kein Sonnenschein zur Stunde;
Drei Tage lang kein gutes Wort
Aus meiner Liebsten Munde!

Sie trutzt mit mir und ich mit ihr,
So hat sie's haben wollen;
Mir aber nagt's am Herzen hier,
Das Schmollen und das Grollen.

Willkommen denn, des Jägers Lust,
Gewittersturm und Regen!
Fest zugeknöpft die heiße Brust,
Und jauchzend euch entgegen!

Nun sitzt sie wohl daheim und lacht
Und scherzt mit den Geschwistern;
Ich höre in des Waldes Nacht
Die alten Blätter flüstern.

Nun sitzt sie wohl und weinet laut
Im Kämmerlein, in Sorgen;
Mir ist es wie dem Wilde traut,
In Finsterniß geborgen.

Kein Hirsch und Rehlein überall!
Ein Schuß zum Zeit vertreibe!
Gesunder Knall und Wiederhall
Erfrischt das Mark im Leibe. --

Doch wie der Donner nun verhallt
In Tälern, durch die Runde,
Ein plötzlich Weh mich überwallt,
Mir sinkt das Herz zu Grunde.

Sie trutzt mit mir und ich mit ihr,
So hat sie's haben wollen,
Mir aber frißt's am Herzen hier,
Das Schmollen und das Grollen.

Und auf! und nach der Liebsten Haus!
Und sie gefaßt um's Mieder!
"Drück' mir die naßen Locken aus,
und küß' und hab' mich wieder!"

Il cacciatore

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

Da tre giorni piove senza posa,
fino a ora nessun raggio di sole;
da tre giorni non una parola buona
dalle labbra dell'amore mio.

E' in conflitto con me e io con lei,
così ha voluto.
Ma mi rodono il cuore
il broncio e il rancore.

Siano allora benvenuti, il piacere della caccia,
e la tempesta e la pioggia!
Ben chiusi i bottoni sul petto che brucia,
vado lieto incontro a voi!

Ora lei sta a casa e ride
scherzando con fratelli e sorelle;
mentre io ascolto, di notte,
il fruscio delle foglie secche.

Ora lei sta seduta a piangere,
in pensiero, nella sua cameretta,
Come la selvaggina mi sento a mio agio
al sicuro nell'oscurità! 

Nessun cervo o capriolo in vista!
Uno sparo per passare il tempo!
Un salutare botto e la sua eco
rinfrancano le ossa fino al midollo. --

Eppure quando l'eco si spegne,
tutt'intorno, nelle valli,
un improvviso dolore mi prende,
e sento sprofondarmi il cuore.

E' in conflitto con me e io con lei,
così ha voluto.
Ma mi rodono il cuore
il broncio e il rancore.

E allora via! A casa dall'amata!
La stringerò alla vita!
"Asciuga i miei riccioli umidi,
e baciami e prendimi nuovamente con te!"
