Frühling

Available translation(s): CAT DUT DUT ENG ENG FRE FRI ITA NOR SPA
In dämmrigen Grüften
Träumte ich lang
Von deinen Bäumen und blauen Lüften,
Von deinem Duft und Vogelsang. 

Nun liegst du erschlossen
In Gleiß und Zier,
Von Licht übergossen
Wie ein Wunder vor mir. 

Du kennst mich wieder,
Du [lockest]1 mich zart,
Es zittert durch all meine Glieder
Deine selige Gegenwart.

Primavera
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the German (Deutsch) 
 En el interior de oscuras grutas 
 soñé por largo tiempo
 con tus árboles y tus cielos azules,
 con tu fragancia y el canto de tus pájaros.

 Ahora apareces desplegada 
 con espléndido ornato,
 inundada de luz,
 como un milagro ante mí.

 Tú me reconoces,
 me abrazas tiernamente.
 Percibo a través del temblor de todos mis miembros
 tu sagrada presencia.
