Foran i et Exemplar af,,Eventyr

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

Foran i et Exemplar af ,,Eventyr''
til min Boghandlers yngste Søn

 
Bogladen er en sand Aladdins Hule,
Med Træer fra Goethes Park og Shakspear's Land,
Med Blomst fra Hindostan og Mos fra Thule,
Med Perler klare — tidt det bare Vand.
Der er Du voxet op fra lille Fyr,
Ja Du er født i den Aladdins Hule,
Og maa da skatte meer, end kun en Smule
Hvad Mængden kalder: „Børne-Eventyr".
