Waldemar:
 Nun dämpft die Dämm'rung
 jeden Ton von Meer und Land,
 Die fliegenden Wolken lagerten sich 
 wohlig am Himmelsrand.
 Lautloser Friede schloß dem Forst
 die luftigen Pforten zu,
 und des Meeres klare Wogen
 wiegten sich selber zur Ruh.
 Im Westen wirft die Sonne
 von sich die Purpurtracht
 und träumt im Flutenbette
 des nächsten Tages Pracht.
 Nun regt sich nicht das kleinste Laub
 in des Waldes prangendem Haus;
 nun tönt auch nicht der leiseste Klang:
 Ruh' aus, mein Sinn, ruh' aus!
 Und jede Macht ist versunken
 in der eignen Träume Schoß,
 und es treibt mich zu mir selbst zurück,
 stillfriedlich, sorgenlos.

Il crepuscolo ora smorza
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Waldemar:
 Il crepuscolo ora smorza
 ogni suono su mare e su terra,
 nuvole in viaggio si distendono lievi
 su lembi di cielo.
 Una silenziosa quiete ha circondato
 le ariose soglie del bosco,
 e le chiare onde del mare,
 sé stesse cullando, si sono calmate.
 A occidente il sole ha disteso
 il suo mantello di porpora
 e sogna, adagiato sui flutti,
 lo splendore del giorno seguente.
 Ed ora nemmeno la più piccola fronda si muove
 nella splendida dimora del bosco;
 Ora neppure il suono 
 più lieve riecheggia, riposa, anima mia, riposa!
 E ogni energia è sprofondata
 nell'abbraccio dei sogni,
 e io sono risospinto verso me stesso,
 in silenziosa pace e sciolto da ogni affanno.
