Hans Christian Andersen 1805 (Odense) – 1875 (Copenhagen)

Jeg savner noget! — skal jeg Navnet sige?
Det er just ikke af en sjelden Slags;
Jeg savner — ja — en lille, bitte Pige -
Ak, Herre Gud! nu leer man ad mig strax!
Tør jeg da aldrig elske, aldrig sværme?
Hvad? Er jeg ikke gammel nok dertil?
Gud veed, jeg vil jo ei en Sjæl fornærme,
Nei holde af, det er jo det jeg vil!
 
Enhver Poet, selv ganske smaae Personer,
Har sig en Kjærest; — det maa være rart!
Man er ulykkelig, man sukker og man daaner,
O, jeg maa med! og jeg maa med lidt snart.
Men endnu har jeg ingen ret i Sigte,
At jeg kan blive for min Længsel qvit;
Gud veed, jeg sværmer nok for mine Digte,
Men Herre Gud, det er mig dog for lidt!
 
Nei jeg maa eie — hvad jeg nu vil sige -
En Kjæreste, saa faaer vist Hjertet Ro;
En lille, kun en ganske lille Pige,
Thi jeg er stor nok for os begge to!
O, kom! lad ei det søde Haab mig svigte;
Thi Kjærlighed dog klæder Folk saa net.
Men Du maa rose alle mine Digte,
Thi jeg slaaer op, saa snart Du glemmer det!
