Sagte vender hun Hovedet halfft
Lyddende fjærnt til Ord som bli'r talt
Et Stæd under Bakken, om Hiertets Vee

"Sola gaar bak Aase ned
Skuggan' bli saa lange
Natte kjem snart atteved
Teke meg i Fange"

De Taaren dend fulgte hendes Savn
Een Længsel hiem til siine
Hun vilde saa gierne hafve dem i siin Favn
Sorrigen sadte Rood i navnløs Piine

Hun graader
Hun falmer
Hun seer ey paa Nattesti

Hun falder i Sofn paa Moseseng
Oc aldting tier
Saa dæcker et Mulm
Hendes Drømmers Stier

    General CommentOfficial Translation:

    Betwixt Cragges A Descending Sunne

    Slowly, slowly She turns her Head
    Listening to distant words
    Spoken from somewhere Below, O'th'Heart's woe

    The Maiden:
    "Betwixt the cragges a descending Sunne
    The shadows grow O so long
    Soon the Night will come
    To binde and imprison Me"

    Downe her cheek a Teardrop fell
    of longinge for those back Home
    How She wished to hold&be held
    And out of Sorrow rose Her nameless Payne

    Shrunken in weepinge
    Lost in the Darke
    On these Midnighte paths

    Asleep She falls on a bed of Moss
    Silence falls upon the Trees
    Then, o'er the paths of her dreams,
    A dense Veil falls

    Now art Thou by many remembered!
