Wie bist du, meine Königin
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Persian (Farsi) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA SPA
Wie bist du, meine Königin,
Durch sanfte Güte wonnevoll!
Du lächle nur, Lenzdüfte wehn
Durch mein Gemüte, wonnevoll!

Frisch aufgeblühter Rosen Glanz,
Vergleich ich ihn dem deinigen?
Ach, über alles, was da blüht,
Ist deine Blüte wonnevoll!

Durch tote Wüsten wandle hin,
Und grüne Schatten breiten sich,
Ob fürchterliche Schwüle dort
Ohn Ende brüte, wonnevoll!

Laß mich vergehn in deinem Arm!
Es ist ihm ja selbst der Tod,
Ob auch die herbste Todesqual
Die Brust durchwüte, wonnevoll!

Quanto mi appari, o mia regina
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Quanto mi appari, o mia regina,
nella tua soave bontà, deliziosa!
Tu pure sorridi, e venti primaverili
Mi attraversano l'animo, deliziosi!
 
Lo splendore di rose appena schiuse,
posso paragonarlo al tuo?
Ah, più di ogni cosa che ovunque fiorisce
E' il tuo fiorire, delizioso!
 
Se tu vagassi per morti deserti,
si coprirebbero di ombre verdi,
e se anche un'afa terribile
senza fine incombesse, sarebbe deliziosa!
 
Lascia che io muoia fra le tue braccia!
In esse sarebbe la morte stessa,
se anche con il tormento più crudo
nel mio petto infuriasse, deliziosa!
