Meine Lieder
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG 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!
