Draumalandið (1903)

Draumalandið

Ó, leyf mér þig að leiða
til landsins fjalla heiða
með sælu sumrin löng,
þar angar blómabreiða
við blíðan fuglasöng.
Þar aðeins yndi fann ég,
þar aðeins við mig kann ég,
þar batt mig tryggðaband;
því þar er allt sem ann ég,
það er mitt draumaland.

Land of Dreams

O, let me lead you yonder
to the high moors of that land
where endless summer reigns.
The air with flowers fragrant
and filled with birdsong sweet.
There only I find delight,
there only I belong.
With steadfast bands it binds me,
for there is all I cherish
There is the land of my dreams.
