Was weht um meine Schläfe
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE
Was weht um meine Schläfe 
Wie laue Frühlingsluft, 
Was spielt um meine Wangen
Wie süßer Rosenduft?
 
Es ist dein holder Gedanke, 
Der tröstend mich umspielt,
Es ist dein stilles Sehnen, 
Was meine Schläfe kühlt!

Und was wie Harfenklänge
Um meine Sinne schwirrt,
Mein Name ist's, der leise 
Von deinen Lippen irrt.

Ich fühle deine Nähe! 
Es ist dein Wunsch, dein Geist,
Der mich aus weiter Ferne 
An deinen Busen reißt.

Proximitat de l’esperit
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Què alena al voltant de les meves temples
com una tèbia brisa d’estiu,
què juga al voltant de les meves galtes
com un dolç perfum de roses?

És el teu gentil pensament
que juga al meu voltant per reconfortar-me,
és el teu silenciós anhel
que refresca les meves temples!

I el que, com el so d’una arpa,
brunzina al voltant dels meus sentits,
és el meu nom que fluixet
vagareja des dels teus llavis.

Sento la teva proximitat!
És el teu desig, el teu esperit,
que des de la llunyania
m’arrabassa vers el teu pit.
