Wandl' ich in dem Wald des Abends
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG SPA
Wandl' ich [in dem]1 Wald des Abends,
In dem träumerischen Wald,
Immer wandelt mir zur Seite
Deine zärtliche Gestalt.
 
Ist es nicht dein weißer Schleier?
Nicht dein sanftes Angesicht?
Oder ist es nur der Mondschein,
Der durch Tannendunkel bricht?
 
Sind es meine eignen Tränen
Die ich leise rinnen hör'?
Oder gehst du, Liebste, [wirklich]2
Weinend neben mir einher?

Cuando paseo por el bosque al atardecer
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Cuando paseo por el bosque al atardecer,
Entre los árboles de ensueño,
A mi lado siempre deambula
Tu tierna silueta.
	
¿No es ese tu velo blanco?
¿No es ese tu suave rostro?
¿O acaso sea la luz de la luna
que ilumina la oscuridad de los abetos?

¿Son mis propias lágrimas
que escucho caer suavemente?
¿O de verdad eres tú, amada mía,
que lloras junto a mí?
