Von der Last des Gedankens und der Seele befreit, Mädchen,

Fløytespiller
Language: Norwegian (Bokmål)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Befridd fra tankenes og sjelens last,
kvinne, synger ungdommen i deg en sang.
Hyrdefløytens søte og enkle toner,
Å, atter bundet av det vidunderlige bærer du i deg
alle fløytespillerens lengsler og tanker.
