Im Walde
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE HEB ITA NOR POR POR SPA
Es zog eine Hochzeit den Berg entlang,
Ich hörte die Vögel schlagen,
Da blitzten viel Reiter, das Waldhorn klang,
Das war ein lustiges Jagen!1

Und eh' ich's gedacht, war alles verhallt,
Die Nacht bedecket die Runde,
Nur von den Bergen [rauschet]2 der Wald
Und mich [schauert]3 im Herzensgrunde.

1 Schumann adds an additional stanza here (op.75):
Der Bräutigem küsste die blasse Braut,
die Mutter sprach leis', "Nicht klagen!"
Fort schmettert das Horn durch die Schluchten laut,
Es war ein lustiges Jagen!
2 Schumann: "noch rauschet"
3 Schumann: "schauert's"

Nel bosco
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Passava un corteo nuziale lungo la montagna,
sentivo cantare gli uccelli,
come un lampo, tanti cavalieri, il suono del corno,
era un'allegra caccia!

E prima che ci pensassi, tutto era finito,
la notte copre tutto qui intorno,
solo dalle montagne stormisce ancora il bosco
e io sento un fremito in fondo al cuore.
