Träume

Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE ITA NOR NYN RUS
Sag, welch wunderbare Träume
Halten meinen Sinn umfangen,
Daß sie nicht wie leere Schäume
Sind in ödes Nichts vergangen?

Träume, die in jeder Stunde,
Jedem Tage schöner blühn,
Und mit ihrer Himmelskunde
Selig durchs Gemüte ziehn!

Träume, die wie hehre Strahlen
In die Seele sich versenken,
Dort ein ewig Bild zu malen:
Allvergessen, Eingedenken!

Träume, wie wenn Frühlingssonne
Aus dem Schnee die Blüten küßt,
Daß zu nie geahnter Wonne
Sie der neue Tag begrüßt,

Daß sie wachsen, daß sie blühen,
Träumend spenden ihren Duft,
Sanft an deiner Brust verglühen,
Und dann sinken in die Gruft.

Draumar
Language: Norwegian (Nynorsk)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Sei, kva var det for herlege draumar
som heldt sinnet mitt fast
og som ikkje, lik bobler,
har forsvunne i den mørke natt?

Draumar, som i kvar ein time,
kvar ein dag blømar herleg
og med himmelske imitasjonar
salig flyt igjennom hjartet mitt?

Draumar, som med vakre strålar
gjennomborar sjela og for der
å legge att eit evig avtrykk:
Alt-gløymande, påhugsande!

Draumar, som når vårsola
kysser blomar opp av snøen
og i uventa lukke 
blir dei helsa av den nye dagen.

Så dei veks, og dei blømer
i draume gir frå seg si duft.
og sakte falme på ditt bryst
og søkke ned i grava.
