Das Laub fällt von den Bäumen
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA POR
Das Laub fällt von den Bäumen,
Das zarte Sommerlaub.
Das Leben mit seinen Träumen
Zerfällt in Asch und Staub.

Die Vöglein im Walde sangen,
Wie schweigt der Wald jetzt still!
Die Lieb ist fortgegangen,
Kein Vöglein singen will.

Die Liebe kehrt wohl wieder
Im lieben künft'gen Jahr,
Und alles kehrt dann wieder,
Was jetzt verklungen war.

Du Winter, sei willkommen,
Dein Kleid ist rein und neu.
Er hat den Schmuck genommen,
Den Schmuck bewahrt er treu.

Canção de Outono
Language: Portuguese (Português)  after the German (Deutsch) 
As folhas caem das árvores,
As suaves folhas de verão 
A vida com os seus sonhos
Desfaz-se em cinza e pó.

Os passarinhos cantavam no bosque,
Como o bosque está agora silencioso!
O amor foi-se embora,
Nenhum passarinho quer cantar.

O amor há-de voltar
No caro ano que vem,
E tudo então regressa
Tudo o que agora esmoreceu.

Tu, Inverno, sê benvindo
A tua veste é pura e nova.
Retirou os seus ornamentos,
Conserva-os fielmente.
