Meine Lieder
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA
Wenn mein Herz beginnt zu klingen
Und den Tönen löst die Schwingen,
Schweben vor mir her und wieder
Bleiche Wonnen, unvergessen
Und die Schatten von Zypressen -
Dunkel klingen meine Lieder!

Mijn liederen
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Als mijn hart begint te zingen
En de tonen vrij laat swingen,
Zweven vóór mij – zacht geflonker –
Bleke lusten, onvergeten,
En cipressenschaduwbeten.
Ja, mijn lied’ren klinken donker!
