Löft de klingre Glaspokaler

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Løft de klingre Glaspokaler,
Som Burgunder-Bølger maler
Røde som en mørk Rubin.

  En svunden Dag
  En svunden Tid
  Vaagner igen i mit Minde.

Nu Dæmringen kvælder,
Og Jorden har vendt
Sig bort ifra Sollysets Strømme.
  Vilde Rose ved Alfarvej,
  Vinrose, Vinrose!

Vilde Rose ved Alfarvej,
Hvor er vor lyse Sommernats Drøm?
Svunden som Tonernes flygtige Strøm?
  Vinrose, Vinrose!

This may be Haquinius's text (to be verified):
Løft de klingre Glaspokaler,
Som Burgunder-Bølger maler
Røde som den sorte Nat.

Fat
Eders Bægre og rejs jer brat
I Rid're af Livets bugnende Bord,
Rid're af den runde Jord!

Lift on high and clink the glasses

Language: English after the Danish (Dansk)

Lift on high and clink the glasses 
Look how bright the Burgundy flashes 
Like a ruby deepest red.

A faded day,
A time gone by
Comes back again to my memory.

Now twilight is falling,
The earth has wended away 
From the sun’s warming rays 
Roses wild on the great highway, 
Wine roses, wine roses!

Roses wild on the great highway,
Where is our glowing summer night’s dream? 
Gone as a strain of music goes?
Wine roses, wine roses!
