Bei diesem kalten Wehen

Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE
Bei diesem kalten Wehen 
Sind alle Strassen leer,
Die Wasser stille stehen; 
Ich aber [schweif umher]1,

Die Sonne scheint so trübe, 
Muss früh hinuntergehn,
Erloschen ist die Liebe,
Die Lust kann [nicht]2 bestehn.

[ Nun geht der Wald zu Ende,
Im Dorfe mach ich halt,
Da wärm ich meine Hände,]3
Bleibt auch das Herze kalt.

Amb aquests gèlids cops de vent
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Amb aquests gèlids cops de vent
tots els carrers estan buits,
l’aigua s’ha congelat,
però jo vagarejo d’una banda a l’altra,

el sol sembla tan somort,
aviat s’ha de pondre,
l’amor s’ha extingit,
el goig no pot durar.

Adés deixo el bosc
i al poble faré parada,
allà m’escalfaré les mans, 
fred però romandrà el meu cor.
