Wandl ich in dem Morgentau
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE TUR
Wandl ich in dem Morgentau
Durch die dufterfüllte Au,
Muß ich schämen mich so sehr
Vor den Blümlein ringsumher!

Täublein auf dem Kirchendach,
Fischlein in dem Mühlenbach
Und das Schlänglein still im Kraut,
Alles fühlt und nennt sich Braut.

Apfelblüt im lichten Schein
Dünkt sich stolz ein Mütterlein;
Freudig stirbt so früh im Jahr
Schon das Papillonenpaar.

Gott, was hab ich denn getan,
Daß ich ohne Lenzgespan,
Ohne einen süßen Kuß
Ungeliebet sterben muß?

Sabah serinliğinde gezinirken
Language: Turkish (Türkçe)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Sabah serinliğinde gezinirken
Mis kokulu çayırlarda,
Ne kadar da çok utanıyorum
Etrafımdaki çiçeklerden! 
 
Kilisenin damındaki küçük güvercin,
Değirmenin deresindeki küçük balık
Ve bitkilerin arasındaki o sessiz küçük yılan,
Hepsi de öyle hissediyor ve kendisinden gelin diye söz ediyor.
 
Elma çiçeği ışıltılar içinde 
Kendini gururla küçük anne sanıyor
Henüz mevsim başındayken ölüyor
Kelebek çifti pürneşe.
 
Tanrım, peki ben ne yaptım da,
İlkbaharda bir eşim olmadan,
Tatlı bir öpücük bile almadan
Ölmek zorunda kalıyorum hiç sevilmeden?
