[Das]1 macht, es hat die Nachtigall
Die ganze [Nacht]2 gesungen;
Da sind von ihrem süssen Schall,
Da sind in Hall und Widerhall
Die Rosen aufgesprungen.
 
Sie war doch sonst ein wildes [Kind]3,
Nun geht sie tief in Sinnen,
Trägt in der Hand den Sommerhut
Und duldet still der Sonne Glut
Und weiß nicht, was beginnen.

Das macht, es hat die Nachtigall
Die ganze Nacht gesungen;
Da sind von ihrem süssen Schall,
Da sind in Hall und Widerhall
Die Rosen aufgesprungen.

C. Nostitz sets stanzas 2-?

El rossinyol
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Això és perquè el rossinyol
ha cantat tota la nit;
a causa del seu dolç cant,
i per el seu so i ressò,
han florit les roses.

Ella era abans una noia feréstega,
i ara reblerta de seny, 
porta a la mà el barret d'estiu,
suportant en silenci la xardor del sol,
sense saber ben bé què fer.

Això és perquè el rossinyol
ha cantat tota la nit;
a causa del seu dolç cant,
i per el seu so i ressò,
han florit les roses.
