Du skog! som bøyer deg imot

Language: Norwegian (Nynorsk)

Du skog! som [bøyer]1 deg imot
og kysser denne svarte å,
som grever av di hjarterot
og ned i fanget vil deg få.

Lik deg eg mang ein munde sjå
og allerhelst i livsens vår,
at han den handi kyste på,
som slog hans verste hjartesår.


Translation(s): DAN FRE GER

Der Wald

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Norwegian (Nynorsk)

Du beugst, o Wald, Dich niederwärts
Und küssest jene schwarze Flut,
Die nagend frisst Dein Wurzelherz
Und saugt und trinkt von Deinem Blut.

Wie Dich hab' Manchen ich gekannt,
Der Lenz und Lust im Herzen trug
Und dennoch küsste jene Hand,
die ach! ihm tiefste Wunden schlug.


From the Sinding score.
