Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG
Es geht ein Wehen durch den Wald,
Die Windsbraut hör' ich singen.
Sie singt von einem Buhlen gut
Und bis sie dem in Armen ruht,
Muß sie noch [weit]1 in bangem Muth
Sich durch die Lande schwingen.

Der Sang der klingt so schauerlich,
Der klingt so wild, so trübe.
Das heiße Sehnen ist erwacht;
Mein Schatz, zu tausend gute Nacht!
Es kommt der Tag, eh du's gedacht,
Der eint getreue Liebe!

Passa un alè per el bosc
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Passa un alè per el bosc,
sento cantar la núvia del vent.
Ella canta d'un benèvol amant
i, fins que no reposi en els seus braços,
ha de voltar encara, arreu als camps,
amb neguitós ànim.

El seu cant sona tan llòbrec,
tan feréstec, tan trist,
que un ardent desig em desperta,
el meu tresor de mil bones nits!
Més aviat que et penses, arribarà el dia
que et reunirà amb el teu fidel amant!
