Du Blomst i Dug!
Language: Danish (Dansk) 
Available translation(s): ENG GER
Du Blomst i Dug!
Du Blomst i Dug!
Hvisk mig Drømmene dine:
Er der i dem den samme Luft,
Den samme sælsomme Elverlandsduft
Som i mine?
Og hvisker, sukker og klager det dèr
Gennem døende Duft og blundende Skær,
gennem vågende Klang, gennem spirende Sang:
I Længsel,
I Længsel jeg lever!

Du Blume im Tau!
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Danish (Dansk) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Du Blume im Tau!
Du Blume im Tau!
Sag flüsternd mir deine Träume.
Durchweht sie auch dieselbe Luft,
Derselbe seltsame Elfenreichduft,
Wie meine?
Und flüstern und seufzen und klagen sie nicht
In flüchtigem Duft, in schwindendem Licht,
In zitterndem Klang, in süßem Sang:
In Sehnsucht,
In Sehnsucht ich lebe!
