by Eduard Mörike (1804 - 1875)

Bei einer Trauung
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE FRE ITA SPA
Vor lauter hochadligen Zeugen
copuliert man ihrer Zwei;
die Orgel hängt voll Geigen,
der Himmel nicht, mein' Treu!

Seht doch, sie weint ja greulich,
er macht ein Gesicht abscheulich!
Denn leider freilich, freilich
keine Lieb' ist nicht dabei.

En una boda
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Ante muy nobles testigos
están casando a dos;
El órgano suena con todos sus violines
pero el cielo calla, ay Dios!

¡Miren como llora ella amargamente!
¡A él se le tuerce el gesto horriblemente!
Y por desgracia es evidente, evidente
que no hay amor entre los dos.
