Leiden der Trennung
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE
Vom Meere trennt sich die Welle,
Und seufzet durch Blumen im Thal,
Und fühlet gewiegt in der Quelle,
Gebannt in dem Brunnen nur - Qual!

[Sie sehnt sich,]1 die Welle,
In lispelnder Quelle,
Im murmelnden Bache,
Im Brunnengemache

Zum Meer, von dem sie kam,
[Aus]2 dem sie Leben nahm,
Von dem, des Irrens matt und müde,
Sie süße Ruh verhofft und Friede.

El dolor de la separació
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
L’onada se separa del mar
i sospira a través les flors de la vall,
i sent, bressolada a la font,
captivada a la deu, només turment!

L’onada anhela,
a la font xiuxiuejant,
al rierol mormolejant,
al bassal de la deu,

tornar al mar, d’on ella vingué, 
on ella nasqué,
on, feble i cansada del seu errar,
espera trobar un dolç repòs i la pau.
