Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG
Es stürmet am Abendhimmel,
Es zittert der Sonne Licht,
Im Äther die eine Wolke
Von Lust und Lieb' ihr spricht.

Die Wolke, vom Sturm gezogen,
Dehnt weit die Arme aus,
Sie glüht im Purpur der Liebe
Und wirbt im Sturmgebraus.

Da scheidet die Braut von dannen,
Die Wolke der Sturm entrafft;
Der Purpur ist all verschwunden,
Schwarz ist sie und grausenhaft.

Tempesteja al cel del capvespre
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Tempesteja al cel del capvespre,
tremola la llum del sol,
a l’èter, un núvol solitari
li parla del goig de l’amor.

El núvol, arrossegat per la tempesta,
obre els seus braços,
encès amb el color porpra de l’amor,
galanteja enmig del bramul de la tempesta.

Llavors el sol se’n va,
el núvol és arrabassat per la tempesta;
desapareix del tot el color porpra,
el núvol esdevé negre i espaventós.
