Sommertage
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE ITA POR
Nun ziehen Tage über die Welt,
Gesandt aus blauer Ewigkeit,
Im Sommerwind verweht die Zeit.
Nun windet nächtens der Herr
Sternenkränze mit seliger Hand
Über Wander- und Wunderland.
O Herz, was kann in diesen Tagen
Dein hellstes Wanderlied denn sagen
Von deiner tiefen, tiefen Lust:
Im Wiesensang verstummt die Brust,
Nun schweigt das Wort, wo Bild um Bild
Zu dir zieht und dich ganz erfüllt.

Giornate estive
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Ora percorrono il mondo giorni
mandati dall'azzurro eterno,
nel vento estivo il tempo si disperde.
Ora intesse nella notte il Signore,
con mani beate, ghirlande di stelle
sopra un paese ricco di strade e meraviglie.
Mio cuore, come potrà esprimere, in questi giorni,
il tuo più puro canto di viandante,
quanto è profonda, profonda la tua gioia:
Per il canto dei prati si fa muto il petto,
e tace la parola, e immagini su immagini
ti vengono incontro e appieno ti soddisfano.
