Kvällsvisa

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Stundar nattens blida fall,
går en dynings drömska svall
trött i sorl mot stranden.
Står en stjärna öfver våg,
bärs en dröm i drömmars tåg
stilla öfver landen.

Stjärnan darrar blek och klar,
allt som sårat allt som skar
sjönk i djupens strömmar.
Öfver haf och öfver land
spinner minnets tysta hand
ljusa barndomsdrömmar.

Abendlied

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

Träumend sinkt die stille Nacht,
alle Wellen wiegen sacht,
lind und müd am Strande.
Über Fluten zieht der Stern,
Alte Träume wachen fern.
Dämmernd ruhn die Lande.
Alle Sterne zittern weit.

Altes Weh und junges Leid
fliehn wie Wellenschäume.
Über Meer und über Land
webt der Sehnsucht milde Hand
lichte Jugendträume.
