I Seraillets Have
Language: Danish (Dansk) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Rosen sænker sit Hoved, tungt
Af Dug og Duft,
Og Pinjerne svaje saa tyst og mat
i lumre Luft.
Kilderne vælte det tunge Sølv
I døsig Ro,
Minareterne pege mod Himlen op
I Tyrketro,
Og Halvmaanen driver saa jævnt afsted
Over det jævne Blaa,
Og den kysser Rosers og Liljers Flok,
Alle de Blomster smaa
I Seraillets Have,
I Seraillets Have.

Im Garten des Serails
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Danish (Dansk) 
Die Rose senkt ihr Köpfchen, schwer
Von Thau und Duft,
Und die Pinien schwanken still und matt
In schwüler Luft.
Der Quelle flüssiges Silber schleicht
Halbschlafend in des Flusses Bett,
Gen Himmel weist den Muselman
Das schlanke Minaret,
Und der Halbmond steigt empor und zieht
Still übers Meer
Und küßt die Blumen, die kleinen, all
Und der Rosen und Lilien Heer
Im Garten des Serails,
Im Garten des Serails.
