Triolett
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
Senkt die Nacht den sanften Fittig nieder,
Tönt der Zither flüsternder Akkord.
Es entbehrt die Lippe gern das Wort,
Senkt die Nacht den sanften Fittig nieder.
Auch verstummend preisen dich die Lieder,
Holde Nacht, der Liebe treuer Hort!
Senkt die Nacht den sanften Fittig nieder,
Tönt der Zither flüsternder Akkord.

Triolet
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Laat de nacht zijn zachte vleugel zinken,
Dan klinkt citers fluisterend akkoord.
Lippen zenden graag ook weg het woord,
Laat de nacht zijn zachte vleugel zinken.
Stil nog laten lied'ren lof jou klinken,
Lieve nacht, die liefde nooit verstoort!
Laat de nacht zijn zachte vleugel zinken,
Dan klinkt citers fluisterend akkoord.
