Paa Slottet Chillon

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



Vilde Fjelde, speilklar Søe,
Skumle Slot paa Klippe-Ø,
Jeg hos Eder troer paa Trende:
Frihed, Byron og paa hende!
Nu kun Aand til Adel hæver,
Blodet til slig Kraft ei veed;
Konger døe, men Frihed lever,
Frihed, Kunst og Kjærlighed!
