Träume

Language: German (Deutsch)

Sag, welch wunderbare Träume
Halten meinen Sinn umfangen,
Daß sie nicht wie leere Schäume
Sind in ödes Nichts vergangen?

Träume, die in jeder Stunde,
Jedem Tage schöner blühn,
Und mit ihrer Himmelskunde
Selig durchs Gemüte ziehn!

Träume, die wie hehre Strahlen
In die Seele sich versenken,
Dort ein ewig Bild zu malen:
Allvergessen, Eingedenken!

Träume, wie wenn Frühlingssonne
Aus dem Schnee die Blüten küßt,
Daß zu nie geahnter Wonne
Sie der neue Tag begrüßt,

Daß sie wachsen, daß sie blühen,
Träumend spenden ihren Duft,
Sanft an deiner Brust verglühen,
Und dann sinken in die Gruft.

Drømmer

Language: Norwegian (Bokmål) after the German (Deutsch)

Si meg, hvilke vidunderlige drømmer 
omfavner mitt sinn,
som ikke som tomme bobler
forsvinner i et forlatt intet?

Drømmer, som enhver time,
enhver dag blomstrer stadig vakrere,
og med sine himmelske nyheter
trekker salig gjennom mitt hjerte!

Drømmer, som lik edle stråler
senker seg ned i sjelen,
og maler der et evig bilde:
Å tilgi alt, Å tenke på kun Èn!

Drømmer, som om når vårsolen
kysser blomstene opp av snøen,
slik at de med en uforventet lykke
hilser den nye dag,

slik at de vokser, slik at de blomstrer,
og drømmende sprer sin duft,
og mykt gløder og slukner ved ditt bryst,
for deretter å synke ned i graven.
