Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FIN FRE ITA SPA
Nun, ihr Musen, genug! Vergebens strebt ihr zu schildern,
Wie sich Jammer und Glück wechseln in liebender Brust.
Heilen könnet die Wunden ihr nicht, die Amor geschlagen;
Aber Linderung kommt einzig, ihr Guten, von euch.

Bueno, Musas, ¡suficiente! En vano...
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Bueno, Musas, ¡suficiente! En vano tratan de describir
Cómo la miseria y la felicidad alternan en un seno amoroso.
No pueden sanar las heridas que Amor ha causado,
Asi, el unico alivio proviene solamente de ustedes, las gentiles.

About the headline (FAQ)

Translator's note: Amor refers to an object or person, which is why it has a capital letter; "Amor" means "love" in Spanish.
