Will ruhen unter den Bäumen hier

Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA SPA
Will ruhen unter den Bäumen hier,
Die Vögelein hör' ich so gerne.
Wie singet ihr so zum Herzen mir!
Von [unsrer]1 Liebe was wisset ihr
In dieser weiten Ferne?

Will ruhen hier an des Baches Rand,
Wo duftige Blümlein sprießen.
Wer hat euch Blümlein, [hieher]2 gesandt?
Seid ihr ein herzliches Liebespfand
Aus der Ferne von meiner Süßen?

Vull reposar aquí, sota els arbres
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Vull reposar aquí, sota els arbres,
m’agrada tant escoltar els ocells.
Com el vostre cant m’arriba al cor!
Què sabeu del nostre amor
en aquesta remota llunyania?

Vull reposar aquí, prop del rierol,
on brosten flairoses floretes.
Qui us ha enviat aquí, floretes?
Sou una afectuosa penyora d’amor
que m’envia de lluny la meva estimada?
