Fra min Reise i Foraaret 1872

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

Vi kom fra Keiserstaden,
Solen slog med brændende Øxeslag,
Man blev halvkogt ved at gaae paa Gaden,
Det var en brændende Sommerdag.
Paa Tyrols Bjerge laae Sneen,
Derhen os Dampdragen bar,
Det isnende Favntag af Feen
Var Tegn, vi i Alperne var.
Bjergvandet blev Flod, det bruste
Med Hvirvler og skinnende Strøm,
Vinden i Granerne suste, -
En Storhed! En Digtningens Drøm!
