Lille Lise ved Brønden

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

Tæt ved Huset Brønden staaer,
Lille Lise til den gaaer,
Stirrer tankefuld derned,
Thi hun af sin Moder veed,
At man her fra Brøndens Vand
Trækker Børnene i Land;
Ja, hun selv, som her nu staaer,
Kom derfra for fire Aar,
Og en Broder tog' de nys,
Ham, som faaer saa mange Kys.
 
Stivt hun ned i Brønden seer;
„Mon der nu er ingen fleer?
Eller sidde hver og een,
Skjult bag Brøndens Kampesteen?
Rigtignok har Søster sagt,
At os Børn har Storken bragt,
At han har bag Redens Tjørn,
Piger og smaae Drenge-Børn;
Men hvor skiller han de Smaae,
Naar de ei har Klæder paa?
 
Nei, de boe i Brønden her!
Jeg har selv jo været der;
O, nu kan jeg ogsaa see,
Een igjennem Vandet lee!
Hun som lille Lise staaer,
Og har ogsaa gule Haar.
Kunde jeg dog bare faae,
Kun den mindste af de Smaae!
De er' meget bedre der,
End min dumme Dukke her!"
