Available translation(s): CHI DUT ENG FRE ITA NOR
Wenn die Lieb' aus deinen blauen,
Hellen, offnen Augen sieht,
Und vor Lust hinein zu schauen
Mir's im Herzen klopft und glüht;

Und ich halte dich und küße
Deine Rosenwangen warm,
Liebes Mädchen, und ich schließe
Zitternd dich in meinem Arm,

Mädchen, Mädchen, und ich drücke
Dich an meinen Busen fest,
Der im letzten Augenblicke
Sterbend nur dich von sich läßt;

Den berauschten Blick umschattet
Eine düstre Wolke mir,
Und ich sitze dann ermattet,
Aber selig neben dir.

Til Chloë
Language: Norwegian (Bokmål)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Når kjærligheten ut av dine blå,
lyse, åpne øyne skuer,
og av lyst til dit inn å se
mitt hjerte og banker og gløder; 

og jeg holder deg og kysser
dine varme rosenkinn,
kjære unge kvinne, og jeg lukker
deg skjelvende inn i mine armer, 

Kvinne, ja kvinne, jeg trykker
deg fast inntil mitt bryst,
hvorfra jeg kun i det siste øyeblikk,
døende, vil la deg gå; 

Mitt berusede blikk omtåkes
av en dyster sky,
og så sitter jeg utmattet,
men salig, ved din side.
