Den blaalige Dæmring nu dæmper

Language: Danish (Dansk)

VALDEMAR
 Den blaalige Dæmring nu dæmper
 Hver Tone fra Sø og Land,
 De flvvende Skyer har lagt sig
 Til Hvile ved Himlens Rand.
 I lydløs Tynge samlet
 Er Skovens luftige Bo,
 Og Søens klare Bølger
 Har vugget sig selv til Ro.
 I Vesten kaster Solen
 Sin straalende Purpurdragt,
 Saa drager den over sig Bolgen
 Og drømmer om Dagens Pragt.
 Ej mindste Løv sig rører
 Og kalder paa min Sans,
 Ej mindste Tone klinger
 Og vugger mit Sind i Dans.
 Nej, hver en Magt er sunken
 I egne Drømmes Elv
 Og skyder mig blidt og stille
 Tilbage til mig selv.

Nun dämpft die Dämm'rung (Waldemar)

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Danish (Dansk)

Waldemar:
 Nun dämpft die Dämm'rung
 jeden Ton von Meer und Land,
 Die fliegenden Wolken lagerten sich 
 wohlig am Himmelsrand.
 Lautloser Friede schloß dem Forst
 die luftigen Pforten zu,
 und des Meeres klare Wogen
 wiegten sich selber zur Ruh.
 Im Westen wirft die Sonne
 von sich die Purpurtracht
 und träumt im Flutenbette
 des nächsten Tages Pracht.
 Nun regt sich nicht das kleinste Laub
 in des Waldes prangendem Haus;
 nun tönt auch nicht der leiseste Klang:
 Ruh' aus, mein Sinn, ruh' aus!
 Und jede Macht ist versunken
 in der eignen Träume Schoß,
 und es treibt mich zu mir selbst zurück,
 stillfriedlich, sorgenlos.
