Ynglingen

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Vind, som mig smeker och lämnar,
säg, vart din kosa du ämnar,
skyndande, flyktig och snar,
säg mig, var hamnar du, - var?

Bölja, som gungar min julle,
skulle jag följa dig, - skulle
årorna lyda ditt drag,
svara, var hamnade jag?

Tankar, otaliga tankar,
sägen, var kasten I ankar?
Barn av en ädlare värld,
ges det ett mål för er färd?

Der Jüngling

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Swedish (Svenska)

Wind, der die Wang' du mir kühlest,
Sag' mir, wohin du nun zielest?
Eilest und fliehest ja so,
Sag' mir, wo landest du, wo?

Welle, willst weiter du rollen?
Sollte ich folgen dir, sollen
Herz und Gedanken mit dir?
Antwort1! was würde aus mir?

Dunkle, unzähl'ge Gedanken!
Sagt mir's, wo endet mein Schwanken?
Sag' mir's, du ew'ges Gefühl,
Giebt es ein höheres Ziel?
