Laß sie nur gehn, die so die Stolze spielt,
Das Wunderkräutlein aus dem Blumenfeld.
Man sieht, wohin ihr blankes Auge zielt,
Da Tag um Tag ein Andrer ihr gefällt.
Sie treibt es grade wie Toscana's Fluß,
Dem jedes Berggewässer folgen muß.
Sie treibt es wie der Arno, will mir scheinen:
Bald hat sie viel Bewerber, bald nicht einen.

Deixa‑la marxar, la que es fa...
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Deixa-la marxar, la que es fa l’orgullosa,
l’herba miraculosa del camp de flors.
Es pot veure on apunten els seus ulls brillants,
com dia rera dia, li plau un home diferent.
Ella avança com un riu de la Toscana,
que totes les aigües de la muntanya han de seguir.
Ella avança com l’Arno, em sembla a mi:
adés té molts pretendents i adés no en té cap.
