Am Brunnen vor dem Thore
Da steht ein Lindenbaum:
Ich träumt' in seinem Schatten
So manchen süßen Traum.

Ich schnitt in seine Rinde
So manches liebe Wort;
Es zog in Freud' und Leide
Zu ihm mich immer fort.

Ich mußt' auch heute wandern
Vorbei in tiefer Nacht,
Da hab' ich noch im [Dunkel]1
Die Augen zugemacht.

Und seine Zweige rauschten,
Als riefen sie mir zu:
Komm her zu mir, Geselle,
Hier findst du deine Ruh'!

Die kalten Winde bliesen
Mir grad' in's Angesicht,
Der Hut flog mir vom Kopfe,
Ich wendete mich nicht.

Nun bin ich manche Stunde
Entfernt von jenem Ort,
Und immer hör' ich's rauschen:
Du fändest Ruhe dort!

Η φλαμουριά
Language: Greek (Ελληνικά)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Στην πύλη με τη βρύση
Ποθώ τη φλαμουριά,
Γλυκά να με κοιμίσει
Στον ίσκιο μ’ όνειρα.
 
Χαράζω στο κορμί της
Λογάκια αγαπητά,
Και σε χαρά και λύπη,
Σ’ αυτή θα ρθω κοντά.
 
Κι αυτό λοιπόν το βράδυ,
Την επλησίασα,
Και στο βαθύ σκοτάδι,
Τα μάτια έκλεισα.
 
Φωνή κάθε κλωνάρι
Παίρνει απ’ τον άνεμο:
Για έλα, παληκάρι,
Να βρεις γαλήνη εδώ!
 
Σαν δέρνουν κρύοι ανέμοι
Σφοδρά στο πρόσωπο,
Και το καπέλο φεύγει,
Δεν στρέφομαι να δω.
 
Κι αν κάποια ώρα τύχει
Να απομακρυνθώ,
Το δέντρο ψιθυρίζει:
Να ’ρθω ν’ αναπαυθώ.
