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



Paa Livets Tangenter, de sorte og hvide,
Du lystigt fra Barndoms-Landet udride!
De svulme og bæve i sød Harmoni!
Hvad nu kun de drømme, i Klarhed vil stige.
Dig Gud gav den Lykke i Toner at sige
Hvert Hjerte den qvægende Poesi.

Du Hjemmet vil huske med Frugttræer og Birke,
Den duftende Eng med den blegrøde Kirke,
Og Storken og Svalen, som fløi Dig forbi.
Men mon Du vil huske den Trækfugl, som bragte
En Hilsen til Dig og et Blomsterblad lagde
Foran Dig til Tak for hver Melodi?
