Traum durch die Dämmerung
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA SPA
Weite Wiesen im Dämmergrau;
die Sonne verglomm, die Sterne ziehn,
nun geh' [ich]1 zu der schönsten Frau,
weit über Wiesen im Dämmergrau,
tief in den Busch von Jasmin.

Durch Dämmergrau in der Liebe Land;
ich gehe nicht schnell, ich eile nicht;
mich zieht ein weiches samtenes Band
durch Dämmergrau in der Liebe Land,
in ein [mildes, blaues]2 Licht.

Sogno al crepuscolo
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
 Prati lontani nel grigio del crepuscolo;
 il sole cala, vengono le stelle,
 ora vado verso la onna più bella,
 lontano per i prati nel grigio del crepuscolo,
 tra i fitti cespugli di gelsomino.

 Nel grigio del crepuscolo alla terra dell'amore;
 non vado veloce, non ho fretta;
 mi guida un morbido nastro di seta
 nel grigio del crepuscolo alla terra dell'amore,
 in una soave luce azzurra.
