I Seraillets Have
Language: Danish (Dansk) 
Available translation(s): FRE GER
Rosen sænker sit Hoved, tungt
Af Dug og Duft,
Og Pinjerne svaje saa tyst og mat
i lumre Luft.
Kilderne vælte det tunge Sølv
I døsig Ro,
Minareterne pege mod Himlen op
I Tyrketro,
Og Halvmaanen driver saa jævnt afsted
Over det jævne Blaa,
Og den kysser Rosers og Liljers Flok,
Alle de Blomster smaa
I Seraillets Have,
I Seraillets Have.

Im Serail, im Garten
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Danish (Dansk) 
Rose senkt ihre Krone, schwer 
von Tau und Duft,
Die Pinien schwanken so schwer und matt 
in weicher Luft.
Quellen entwallen, von Silber schwer, 
in trägem Lauf 
Minarete entragen zum Himmel 
glaubensstark hinauf.
Es gleitet der Halbmond so eben hin über 
das ebne Blau,
Und er küsst der Rosen und Lilien Flor, küsst auch 
die Blumenau,
Im Serail, im Garten.
