Aufblick
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE NOR
Über unsre Liebe hängt
eine tiefe Trauerweide.
Nacht und Schatten um uns beide.
Unsre Stirnen sind gesenkt.

Wortlos sitzen wir im Dunkeln.
Einstmals rauschte hier ein Strom,
einstmals sahn wir Sterne funkeln.

Ist denn Alles tot und trübe?
Horch: -- ein ferner Mund -- vom Dom:

Glockenchöre... Nacht ... und Liebe...

Blikk oppover
Language: Norwegian (Bokmål)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Over vår kjærlighet henger
en dyp sørgepil.
Natt og skygger omslutter oss begge.
Våre panner er senkede.

Ordløse sitter vi i mørket.
En gang bruste det her en elv,
en gang så vi stjerner blinke.

Er så alt dødt og trist?
Hør: - en fjern munn -- fra kirken:

Klokkekor... Natt og kjærlighet...
