Tak for dit Raad

Language: Norwegian (Bokmål)

Tak for dit Raad,
men jeg lægger min Baad
ind i Brændingens Brus
til det fristende Sus.
Om end Rejsen skal blive den sidste, jeg gjør,
jeg maa prøve, hvad ikke jeg prøvede før.

Ej blot til Lyst
jeg forlader din Kyst, ---
jeg maa Storsjøen naa,
jeg maa Havstyrten faa,
jeg maa Kjølen se, naar det krængende skjær',
jeg maa friste, hvorlangt og hvorlænge det bær'!

Grazie del consiglio

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the Norwegian (Bokmål)

Grazie del consiglio 
ma dirigo la barca
ai fremiti e sussurri 
della risacca.
Fosse questo il mio ultimo viaggio
Ho da provare quel che non ho provato.

Ho una gran voglia 
di lasciare la tua costa
per il mare aperto, 
il tuffo nell'oceano
vedere la chiglia tagliare le onde
e spingerla al confronto supremo.
