Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA
Ätherische ferne Stimmen,
Der Lerchen himmlische Grüße,
Wie regt ihr mir so süße
Die Brust, ihr lieblichen Stimmen!

Ich schließe leis mein Auge,
Da ziehn Erinnerungen
In sanften Dämmerungen
Durchweht vom Frühlingshauche.

Leeuwerikenzang
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Etherische, verre stemmen,
Van leeuw’riken hemelse groeten,
Wat wek j' ontroering, zoete,
In 't hart, o lieflijke stemmen!
 
Ik sluit nu zacht mijn ogen,
Daar zie ‘k herinneringen
In tere schemeringen,
Door lentewind bevlogen.
