Mitten in dem kleinen Teiche
Steht ein Pavillon aus grünem
Und aus weißem Porzellan.

Wie der Rücken eines Tigers
Wölbt die Brücke sich aus Jade
Zu dem Pavillon hinüber.

In dem Häuschen sitzen Freunde,
Schön gekleidet, trinken, plaudern,
Manche schreiben Verse nieder.

Ihre seidnen Ärmel gleiten
Rückwärts, ihre seidnen Mützen
Hocken lustig tief im Nacken.

Auf des kleinen Teiches stiller
Wasserfläche zeigt sich alles
Wunderlich im Spiegelbilde,

Alles auf dem Kopfe stehend
In dem Pavillon aus grünem
Und aus weißem Porzellan;

Wie ein Halbmond steht die Brücke,
Umgekehrt der Bogen. Freunde,
Schön gekleidet, trinken, plaudern.

No meio do pequeno lago
Language: Portuguese (Português)  after the German (Deutsch) 
No meio do pequeno lago
Há um pavilhão de verde
E branca porcelana.

Como as costas de um tigre
Se curva a ponte de jade
Em direção ao pavilhão.

Amigos estão sentados na casinha,
Bem vestidos, bebem e conversam,
Alguns anotam versos.

Suas mangas sedosas deslizam
para trás, seus chapéus sedosos
caem graciosamente abaixo do pescoço.

Sobre a calma superfície da água
Do lago, tudo se mostra
Maravilhosamente como num espelho.

Tudo está de ponta cabeça 
No pavilhão de verde
E branca porcelana. 

A ponte está como uma meia-lua, 
Com seu arco invertido. Amigos,
Bem vestidos, bebem e conversam.
