Ночевала тучка золотая

Available translation(s): DUT
Ночевала тучка золотая
На груди утёса-великана;
Утром в путь она умчалась рано,
По лазури весело играя.

Als der Morgen anbrach, zog sie wieder
Fröhlich fürbaß in die blaue Ferne.

Doch es blieb die feuchte Spur
Eingefurcht dem alten Fersen,
[Einsam schaut er]2 auf die Flur
Trüb versenkt in tiefes [Sinnen]3,
Und ein Thränenstrom entquillt 
Seiner [Stirn]4...
