Tiefes Schweigen waltet ringsum,
Baum und Blume neigen
  Ihre Häupter stumm.
Draußen wirres Treiben,
  Hier wie süße Ruh!
Und wir alle wallen
  Diesem Frieden zu.

Camí del cementiri 
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Regna un profund silenci a tot l’entorn,
muts, els arbres i les flors
vinclen llurs caps.
A fora, confusa activitat,
aquí, un dolç repòs!
I tots peregrinem
vers aquesta pau.
