Meine Rose
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA SPA
Dem holden Lenzgeschmeide,
Der Rose, meiner Freude,
Die schon gebeugt und blasser
Vom heißen Strahl der Sonnen,
Reich' ich den Becher Wasser
Aus [tiefem]1 Bronnen.

Du Rose meines Herzens!
Vom stillen Strahl des Schmerzens
Bist du gebeugt und blasser;
Ich möchte dir zu Füßen,
Wie dieser Blume Wasser,
Still meine Seele gießen!
Könnt' ich dann auch nicht sehen
Dich [auferstehen]2.

Alla mia rosa
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
All'incantevole gioiello della primavera
alla rosa, mia gioia,
che già reclina e si fa pallida,
per i roventi raggi del sole,
io offro una coppa d'acqua
attinta da un pozzo profondo.

Tu rosa del mio cuore!
A  causa dello strale segreto del dolore,
ti sei piegata e ti sei fatta pallida;
Potessi ora ai tuoi piedi,
come l'acqua che verso a questo fiore,
la mia anima in segreto effondere!
Anche se poi non mi sarebbe possibile
vederti risorgere.
