Paa trie Strengen IV

Language: Norwegian (Nynorsk)

Eg tykkjer det er reint langsamt, nar ikkje eg heve deg;
du er i mine Tankar kvarhelst eg svingar meg.
Eg tykkjer det er so dauvleg, anna eg tenkjer 'kje paa 
en Tia snart maatte lie, so deg eg atte fekk sjaa.
Eg tykkjer det er so dauvleg, naar eg deg ikkje mun sjaa.
Aa du maa vera nære og aldri langt ifraa.

Sur la troisième corde IV

Language: French (Français) after the Norwegian (Nynorsk)

Je trouve que le temps est long quand tu n’es pas là,
tu es dans mes pensées où que je me tourne.
Je trouve que tout est si morne que je ne pense
qu’au rapide retour  du moment où je pourrai te revoir.
Je trouve que tout est si morne quand je ne peux te voir .
Ô puisses-tu être près et jamais loin de moi.
