Frøken Christy Hohlenberg

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



Fra Hindostan, — som Digterne jo sige
Er Phantasiens Hjem og Alfers Rige,
Du kom, da Du var Barn, op til vort Norden,
Hvor vaade Taager svæve over Jorden,
Og Svanen vintrer paa den stride Elv.
Dansk var din Slægt og nordisk er Du selv,
Alt Sagaen og Kjæmpevisen priste
Hvad ubevidst Du os i Nutid viste,
At i det stille Liv tidt Blomsten groer,
Som Norden sjelden veed og sjelden troer.
