No... svaniti non sono i sogni, e cedo
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG GER
No... svaniti non sono i sogni, e cedo
e m'abbandono a le tristezze loro:
chiudo li occhi pensosi, e ti rivedo
come in un nimbo di faville d'oro...

Ma tu passi ne l'aere ...
...dileguante ...
per lontano orizzonte indefinito!

Nein, nicht sind verflogen die Träume,...
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Nein, nicht sind verflogen die Träume, und ich
gebe nach und überlasse mich ihrer Trauer:
Nachdenklich schließ’ ich die Augen und sehe dich wieder,
umstrahlt wie vom Glorienschein goldener Funken!

Doch – schon entschwindest du mir . . . . .
. . . . . . . zerfließt . . . . . . .
am fernen, unbestimmten Horizonte!
