Pagen høit paa Taarnet sad
Language: Danish (Dansk) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Pagen høit paa Taarnet sad,
Stirred ud så vide, 
Digtet på et Elskovskvad
Om sin Elskovskvide,
Kunde ikke få det samlet,
Sad og famled'
Nu med Stjerner, nu med Roser -- 
Intet rimed' sig på Roser --
Satte fortvivlet så Hornet for Mund,
Knugede vredt sit Vaerge,
Blaeste så sin Elskov ud
Over alle Bjaerge.

Scènes de genre
Language: French (Français)  after the Danish (Dansk) 
Le page assis en haut de la tour
regardait fixement au loin,
Écrivait un fatras de vers amoureux
Sur ses tourments d'amour,
Ne pouvait y mettre de l'ordre,
Assis il hésitait :
Ici une étoile, ici une rose --
Rien ne rimait avec rose--
Désespéré mit son cor à la bouche,
Serra son instrument,
Et y souffla son amour
Par-dessus tous les monts.
