Manche Thrän' aus meinen Augen
Ist gefallen in den Schnee;
Seine kalten Flocken saugen
Durstig ein das heiße Weh.

[Wann]1 die Gräser sprossen wollen,
Weht daher ein lauer Wind,
Und das Eis zerspringt in Schollen,
Und der weiche Schnee zerrinnt.

Schnee, du weißt von meinem Sehnen:
[Sag mir, wohin]2 geht dein Lauf?
Folge nach nur meinen Thränen,
Nimmt dich bald das Bächlein auf.

Wirst mit ihm die Stadt durchziehen,
Muntre Straßen ein und aus:
Fühlst du meine Thränen glühen,
Da ist meiner Liebsten Haus.

Flutto d'acqua
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Qualche lacrima dai miei occhi
è caduta nella neve;
i suoi freddi fiocchi bevono
assetati l'ardente dolore.

Quando l'erba spunterà
al soffio di un vento tiepido,
il ghiaccio si farà a pezzi
e la morbida neve si scioglierà.

Neve, tu sai come mi struggo,
di', dove va il tuo cammino?
Segui le mie lacrime,
ti prenderà presto il ruscello.

Con lui attraverserai la città,
di qua e di là per le liete strade;
ma quando sentirai le mie lacrime bruciare,
là è la casa della mia amata.
