Johanne Drewsen og C. von Krieger

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

Ved Sundet, hvor Alverdens Skibe møde
For fulde Seil, nær Skov og Kjæmpehøi,
Der fad med Øine blaae og Kinder røde
En lille Pige med sit Legetøi;
Da kom en Officeer, saa ung, saa prægtig,
Han var i Garden, han var Husets Gjæst.
Og saa kom Tiden — Tiden, den er mægtig,
Den tænkte — men ei de — paa Bryllups Fest.
 
Paa Heden, hvor den yngste By her hjemme
Skjød op, da Dygtighedens Magt det bød,
Johanne sang med klar og sjælfuld Stemme,
Og til eet Hjerte allermeest det lød;
En Melodi, den varsled' Livets Lykke,
Den klang ved Sollys og ved maanklar Nat,
Den fulgte til Alhambras Pinie-Skygge
Som Hjemmets kjære, allerbedste Skat.
 
Spind Livets Silke! Den Betydning være
Der i, at Festen staaer paa Silkeborg;
Den grønne Myrte Sølv og Guld vil bære
Igjennem Aar, omsuust af Fryd og Sorg;
Ja, Sorger komme, men for Kjærligheden
Er der i Verden ingen Sorg for tung.
Byg op et Hjem, et lille jordisk Eden,
Hvor Kjærligheden altid bliver ung!
