Silkesko over gylden Læst

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Silkesko over gylden Læst!
Jeg har mig en Jomfru fæst'!
Jeg har mig en dejlig Jomfru fæst'!
Ingen er som hun paa Guds sollyse Jord,
Ikke en eneste en.
Som Himlen i Syd og som Sneen i Nord
Er hun ren.
Men der er Jorderigs Fryd i min Himmel,
Og Flammer der staar af min Sne.
Ingen Sommers Rose er rødere,
End hendes Øje er sort . . .

Soulier de soie sur forme d'or

Language: French (Français) after the Danish (Dansk)

Soulier de soie sur forme d'or !
Je me suis fiancé avec une demoiselle !
Je me suis fiancé avec une ravissante demoiselle !
Pas une sur terre n'est comme elle sous le soleil de Dieu,
Pas une seule.
Elle est pure
Comme le ciel du sud, et comme la neige du nord,
Mais il y a dans mon ciel une joie terrestre,
Et des flammes qui jaillissent de ma neige.
Aucune rose de l'été n'est plus rouge
Que ne sont noirs ses yeux ...
