Original text and translations

Danish.png Danish text

Rosen sænker sit hoved tungt af dug og duft,
og pinjerne svaje så tyst og mat i lumre luft.
Kilderne vælte det tunge sølv i døsig ro,
minareterne pege mod himlen op i tyrketro,
og halvmånen driver så jævnt afsted over det jævne blå
og den kysser rosers og liljers flok, alle de blomster små
i seraillets have, i seraillets have.

English.png English translation

The rose is sinking its head, heavy with dew and fragrance,
And the pines are waving so silent and faint in the sultry air.
The brooks roll their heavy iron in complete tranquility,
Minarets point at Heaven in the Turkish faith,
And the halfmoon slowly drifts away over the evening-blue,
And kisses the herds of roses and lilies, all those little flowers
In Seraglio's Garden, in Seraglio's Garden.
