Cigaren

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



Cigarens Glød er et Ildsted,
hvor Ildaander er tilhuse;
Den Ene blæser med Puster,
at Ilden skal ikke gaae ud;
Den Anden rører med Ildtang,
faaer Saften til at beruse;
I Dampen er der en Troldkraft,
en lille cigarfødt Gud;
Han bygger, som Fata Morgana,
det Røg-Slot Tankerne ville;
Han viser nu for mig Hjemmet
og alle Vennerne der;
Jeg glemmer at Have og Bjerge
uendeligt vidt os skille,
At nede paa Pladsen rigt gløder
Orangens duftfyldte Træer.
— Nu lægger jeg bort Cigaren;
Sevilla, du deilige Stad!
Jeg glemte Dig, jeg var i Danmark,
mens her med Cigaren jeg sad.
