Der Liebe Leid
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Turkish (Türkçe) 
Available translation(s): FRE ITA
Wenn Nachts im Wald die Turteltaube klagt,
dann netz' mein Lager schlaflos ich mit Thränen.
Sie klagt, sie klagt ich aber weine still verzagt,
Verbergend meines Herzens sehnend Wähnen.
So theilen wir womit die Liebe plagt,
Für sie die Klagen und für mich die Thränen,
Die Thränen.

Dolore d'amore
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Quando di notte nel bosco la tortora si lamenta,
io, insonne, bagno di lacrime il mio giaciglio.
Lei si lamenta, si lamenta, mentre afflitto io piango in silenzio,
celando le anelanti fantasie del mio cuore.
Così noi ci dividiamo ciò con cui l'amore tormenta:
per lei i lamenti e per me le lacrime.
