Jetzt wird sie wohl [im]1 Garten gehen,
Der blüht und glüht im [Sonnenlicht]2,
Und in [die]3 Ferne wird sie spähen,
Mich, aber, ach! mich sieht sie nicht.
Und [eine]4 Rose wird sie brechen
Mit stummer Wehmut im Gesicht,
Und meinen Namen wird sie sprechen.
Ich aber, ach! ich hör' es nicht!

A la llunyania
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Ara ella potser sortirà al jardí,
florit i abrusat per la llum del sol
i sotjarà vers la llunyania,
a mi, però, ai! A mi no em veurà.

I collirà una rosa
amb un rostre ple de silenciosa melangia
i dirà el meu nom.
Però jo, ai! Jo no ho sentiré!
