Hjemvee

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

Om Aft'nen i det lille, snevre Kammer,
Naar Alt er stille, i mit Bryst det flammer!
En mægtig Længsel fylder al min Tanke,
Af Hjemvee føler jeg mit Hjerte banke,
Og jeg maa græde, skjøndt jeg er en Mand,
Thi her, har Hjertet intet Fædreland!
 
Naar Kunsten aabner mig sit store Rige,
Den samme Længsel føler jeg da stige,
Enhver Musik, hver Sang der naaer mit Hjerte,
Gjenvækker denne bittre, søde Smerte,
Men Hjemmet finder jeg dog aldrig her,
Mit Hjem er der, hvor jeg kun ikke er!
 
Seer jeg den friske Skov, de grønne Dale,
Da føler jeg, hvad ei jeg kan udtale,
Seer jeg det stolte Hav og Aftenrøden,
Da længes Hjertet mægtigt efter Døden!
Dog nei! det er ei Døden, nei, et Hjem, -
Et Hjem, hvis Navn jeg ei kan stamme frem.
