Der See ruht tief im blauem Traum
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE POR SPA
Der See [ruht]1 tief im [blauem]2 Traum
Von Wasserblumen zugedeckt;
Ihr Vöglein hoch im [Fichtenbaum]3,
Daß ihr mir nicht den Schläfer weckt!

Doch leise weht das Schilf und wiegt 
Das Haupt mit leichtem Sinn;
Ein blauer Falter aber fliegt
Darüber einsam hin.

El llac reposa profundament en un blau...
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
El llac reposa profundament en un blau somni
recobert de nenúfars;
vosaltres ocellets, a dalt dels avets,
no desperteu el dorment!

Tot i així, les canyes onegen suaument i belluguen
els plomalls amb un esperit lleuger;
una papallona blava vola però
al seu damunt solitària.
