Í fjarlægð

Í fjarlægð

Þig, sem í fjarlægð fjöllin bak við dvelur
og fagrar vonir tengdir líf mitt við,
minn hugur þráir, hjartað ákaft saknar,
er horfnum stundum ljúfum dvel ég hjá.
Heyrirðu ei hvern hjartað kallar á?
Heyrirðu ei storm er kveðju mína ber?
Þú fagra minning eftir skildir eina,
sem aldrei gleymist, meðan lífs ég er.

To my distant beloved

You, who dwell behind the distant mountains
and quickened in my life the hope of joy,
my longing wakes, and still my heart remembers,
the hours long gone when happiness was ours.
Do you not hear, my heart’s crying call to you?
Do you not hear, the storm my greetings bear?
All that remains is a memory of beauty,
which while I live, I never will forget.
