Einsamkeit
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE
Die ihr Felsen und Bäume bewohnt, o heilsame Nymphen,
Gebet Jeglichem gern, was er im stillen begehrt!
Schaffet dem Traurigen Trost, dem Zweifelhaften Belehrung,
Und dem Liebenden gönnt, daß ihm begegne sein Glück.
Denn euch gaben die Götter, was sie den Menschen versagten,
Jeglichem, der euch vertraut, [tröstlich und hilfreich]1 zu sein.

Solitud
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Oh nimfes guaridores que habiteu a les roques i als arbres,
doneu a cadascú allò que en silenci desitja!
Procureu consol a l’entristit i alliçonament al que dubta
i a l’enamorat concediu-li que pugui trobar la felicitat.
Car els déus us han donat el que denegaren als homes,
ser confortadores i compassives per a tot el qui en vosaltres confia.
