Set cançons de joventut

Translations © by Salvador Pila

Song Cycle by Alban Maria Johannes Berg (1885 - 1935)

Word count: 504
Original language: Sieben frühe Lieder
Dämmern Wolken über Nacht und Thal,
Nebel schweben. Wasser rauschen sacht.
Nun entschleiert sich's mit einem Mal:
O gieb acht! gieb acht!

Weites Wunderland ist aufgethan,
Silbern ragen Berge traumhaft gross,
Stille Pfade silberlicht thalan
Aus verborg'nem Schoss.

Und die hehre Welt so traumhaft rein.
Stummer Buchenbaum am Wege steht
Schattenschwarz -- ein Hauch vom fernen Hain
Einsam leise [geht] 1.

Und aus tiefen Grundes Düsterheit
Blinken Lichter auf in [stumme]2 Nacht.
Trinke Seele! trinke Einsamkeit!
O gieb acht! gieb acht!

1. Nit
Núvols escampen la foscúria damunt la nit i la vall,
la boira s'enlaira, l'aigua murmureja suaument.
Llavors tot es revela de cop:
Oh, vés amb compte! Vés amb compte!
Un vast país de meravelles s'ha desclòs.
S'alcen llambrejants muntanyes, altes com en un somni,
com llum d'argent, silenciosos senders davallen
de nítols amagats;
i el món és sublim, d'una puresa de somni.
En el camí, s'alça un faig mut,
negre com les ombres, un hàlit del bosquet llunyà,
solitari, sense fer soroll.
I, de la fosca de la terra baixa,
resplendeixen llums en la nit silenciosa.
Beu ànima! Beu solitud!
Oh, vés amb compte! Vés amb compte!

2. Schilflied [sung text checked 1 time]
Auf geheimem Waldespfade
Schleich' ich gern im Abendschein
An das öde Schilfgestade,
Mädchen, und gedenke dein!

Wenn sich dann der Busch verdüstert,
Rauscht das Rohr geheimnisvoll,
Und es klaget und es flüstert,
Daß ich weinen, weinen soll.

Und ich mein', ich höre wehen
Leise deiner Stimme Klang,
Und im Weiher untergehen
Deinen lieblichen Gesang.

2. Cançó del canyís
Per viaranys secrets del bosc
m'agrada caminar, furtívol, al clar de lluna
fins la riba deserta del canyís,
tot pensant en tu, noia estimada!

Quan després es fa fosc en el matoll,
mormolen les canyes misteriosament,
i es planyen, xiuxiuegen,
tant, que haig de plorar, plorar.

I llavors em sembla sentir
el lleu ressò de la teva veu
i en l'estany enfonsar-se
el teu deliciós cant.

3. Die Nachtigall [sung text checked 1 time]
[Das]1 macht, es hat die Nachtigall
Die ganze [Nacht]2 gesungen;
Da sind von ihrem süssen Schall,
Da sind in Hall und Widerhall
Die Rosen aufgesprungen.
 
Sie war doch sonst ein wildes [Kind]3,
[Nun]4 geht sie tief in Sinnen,
Trägt in der Hand den Sommerhut
Und duldet [still]5 der Sonne Glut
Und weiß nicht, was beginnen.

Das macht, es hat die Nachtigall
Die ganze Nacht gesungen;
Da sind von ihrem süssen Schall,
Da sind in Hall und Widerhall
Die Rosen aufgesprungen.

3. El rossinyol
Això és perquè el rossinyol
ha cantat tota la nit;
a causa del seu dolç cant,
i per el seu so i ressò,
han florit les roses.

Ella era abans una noia feréstega,
i ara reblerta de seny, 
porta a la mà el barret d'estiu,
suportant en silenci la xardor del sol,
sense saber ben bé què fer.

Això és perquè el rossinyol
ha cantat tota la nit;
a causa del seu dolç cant,
i per el seu so i ressò,
han florit les roses.

4. Traumgekrönt [sung text checked 1 time]
Das war der Tag der weißen Chrysanthemen,
Mir bangte fast vor seiner Pracht...
Und dann, dann kamst du mir die Seele nehmen
Tief in der Nacht.
Mir war so bang, und du kamst lieb und leise,
Ich hatte grad im Traum an dich gedacht.
Du kamst, und leis' wie eine Märchenweise
Erklang die Nacht.

4. Coronat de somnis
Era el dia dels crisantems blancs,
llur esplendor em feia gairebé basarda...
I, llavors, tu vingueres a rapir-me l'ànima
al bell mig de la nit.
Jo tenia tanta por i tu arribares tendrament i dolça,
quan jo, tot just en somnis, pensava en tu;
vingueres i suaument, com la melodia d'un conte,
la nit feu sentir el seu cant.

5. Im Zimmer [sung text checked 1 time]
Herbstsonnenschein.
Der liebe Abend blickt so still herein.
Ein Feuerlein rot
Knistert im Ofenloch und loht.
So, mein Kopf auf deinen Knie'n,
So ist mir gut.
Wenn mein Auge so in deinem ruht,
Wie leise die Minuten zieh'n.

5. A la cambra
Sol de tardor.
L'agradable capvespre mira tranquil cap endins.
Un petit foc rogenc
espeternega al forat de la llar i flameja.
Així, amb el meu cap damunt els teus genolls,
em sento molt bé.
Quan els meus ulls es fixen en els teus,
que dolçament passen els minuts.

6. Liebesode [sung text checked 1 time]
Im Arm der Liebe schliefen wir selig ein,
Am offnen Fenster lauschte der Sommerwind,
Und unsrer Atemzüge Frieden 
Trug er hinaus in die helle Mondnacht. --

Und aus dem Garten tastete zagend sich 
Ein Rosenduft an unserer Liebe Bett
Und gab uns wundervolle Träume,
Träume des Rausches -- so reich an Sehnsucht!

6. Oda d'amor
En els braços de l'amor, ens adormirem beatíficament,
per la finestra oberta, se sentia el vent estiuenc,
i el nostre plàcid alè,
se l'enduia enfora, devers la clara nit de lluna.

I del jardí pujava, vacil·lant,
una olor de roses cap al nostre llit d'amor
i ens donava somnis meravellosos,
somnis d'embriaguesa, plens de desig ardent!

7. Sommertage [sung text checked 1 time]
Nun ziehen Tage über die Welt,
Gesandt aus blauer Ewigkeit,
Im Sommerwind verweht die Zeit.
Nun windet nächtens der Herr
Sternenkränze mit seliger Hand
Über Wander- und Wunderland.
O Herz, was kann in diesen Tagen
Dein hellstes Wanderlied denn sagen
Von deiner tiefen, tiefen Lust:
Im Wiesensang verstummt die Brust,
Nun schweigt das Wort, wo Bild um Bild
Zu dir zieht und dich ganz erfüllt.

7. Dies d'estiu
Ara transcorren dies per el món,
enviats de l'atzur etern,
en el vent estiuenc, el temps es dispersa.
Ara, de nit, el Senyor trena
garlandes d'estrelles amb ses mans beatífiques
damunt d'un país de caminants i meravelles.
Oh cor meu, en aquests dies, què pot dir
la teva més vibrant cançó de caminant
del teu profund, profund delit:
en el cant de les prades emmudeix el cor,
ara calla la paraula, quan imatge darrera imatge
vénen cap a tu i et satisfan plenament.
