Marine

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Frem under Haarets ravnsorte Sky'r
Øjnenes blinkende Tvillingefyr
Straaler og flyr.
Aandedrags-Luftninger lune og blide
Henover Skuldrenes Klipper de hvide
Sagtelig glide.
Men imod Dragtens Kniplingekyst
Svulmende vugges det bølgende Bryst
Skumhvidt, men tyst.
-- Ak om der lød dog
Smeltende blød og
Daarende mild,
Hen til sig dragende,
Kjerlighedsklagende
Havfruesang!

Seestück

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

Nachtdunklem Wolken gleicht wohl ihr Haar,
Zwiefachen Flammen ihr Augenpaar,
Strahlend und klar.
Ach, wie die Lüfte des Atems mit weichen 
Schwingen die glänzenden Klippen gleichen 
Schultern umstreichen!
Dort, wo der Strand der Spitzentracht liegt,
Ach, wie der schaumweise Busen sich wiegt,
Leise geschmiegt!
Erklänge gleich 
doch schmelzend und weich,
Betörend und mild, 
Hin zu sich ziehend, 
von Zärtlichkeit 
Glühend, der Nixe Gesang!
