I Seraillets Have

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Rosen sænker sit Hoved, tungt
Af Dug og Duft,
Og Pinjerne svaje saa tyst og mat
i lumre Luft.
Kilderne vælte det tunge Sølv
I døsig Ro,
Minareterne pege mod Himlen op
I Tyrketro,
Og Halvmaanen driver saa jævnt afsted
Over det jævne Blaa,
Og den kysser Rosers og Liljers Flok,
Alle de Blomster smaa
I Seraillets Have,
I Seraillets Have.

In the Seraglio Garden

Language: English after the Danish (Dansk)

With perfume heavily laden the roses 
droop their heads,
the pine trees are swaying so silently 
in drowsy air;
and silvery fountains are playing 
so dreamily!
The minarets raise towards heav'n 
in faith their turkisch towers.
The crescent moon glides on her lonely way 
o'er the dark blue sky,
and she kisses clusters of lily and rose 
and other flowers too,
and other flowers too, 
in the seraglio garden!
