Translation by Paul Heyse (1830 - 1914)

Se moro, ricopritemi di fiori
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Se moro, ricopritemi di fiori,
E sottoterra non mi ci mettete;
Mettetemi di là de chelle mura
Dove piú volte vista mi ci avete.
Mettetemi di là, all'acqua, al vento:
Che se moro per voi, moro contenta;
Mettetemi di là, all'acqua, al sole:
Che se moro per voi, moro d'amore.

Sterb' ich, so hüllt in Blumen meine...
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE NOR
Sterb' ich, so hüllt in Blumen meine Glieder;
Ich wünsche nicht, daß ihr ein Grab mir grabt.
Genüber jenen Mauern legt mich nieder,
Wo ihr so manchmal mich gesehen habt.
Dort legt mich hin, in Regen oder Wind;
  Gern sterb' ich, ist's um dich, geliebtes Kind.
Dort legt mich hin in Sonnenschein und Regen;
  Ich sterbe lieblich, sterb' ich deinetwegen.
