Tiefer sinket schon die Sonne
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA
Tiefer sinket schon die Sonne,
Und es athmet alles Ruhe,
Tages Arbeit ist vollendet,
Und die Kinder scherzen munter.
Grüner glänzt die grüne Erde,
Eh die Sonne ganz versunken;
Milden Balsam hauchen leise
In die Lüfte nun die Blumen,
Der die Seele zart berühret,
Wenn die Sinne selig trunken.
Kleine Vögel, ferne Menschen,
Berge himmelan geschwungen,
Und der große Silberstrom,
Der im Thale schlank gewunden,
Alles scheint dem Dichter redend,
Denn er hat den Sinn gefunden;
Und das All ein einzig Chor,
Manches Lied aus einem Munde.

Tramonto
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Più in basso il sole è disceso,
ogni cosa diffonde pace,
è cessato il lavoro del giorno,
i bimbi giocano allegri.
Più intensa risplende la terra verde
nel momento che precede il calare del sole.
I fiori emanano un dolce balsamo
che si diffonde piano nell'aria
e accarezza teneramente l'anima,
mentre i sensi ne sono inebriati.
Piccoli uccelli, gente lontana,
montagne che si elevano al cielo,
e il grande fiume d'argento,
che attraversa sinuoso la valle;
Tutti sembrano parlare al poeta,
perché egli ne comprende il linguaggio:
E il mondo intero è un unico coro
che con una sola voce canta molte canzoni.
