Pauli 1. Cor. 15, 42-44

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

Naar Jordelarven brister
  med sine skjøre Baand,
Et aandigt Legem slutter
  sig om den stærke Aand;
Det er de samme Former,
  men i en nyfødt Vaar,
Og luftigt, klart og herligt,
  det kjendte Billed staaer.
 
— I Træ, i Fjeld og Bølge
  bevæger sig en Aand;
Troe ikke den forsvinder
  for Dødens kolde Haand!
Dens Aander dristigt forme
  sig over Jordens Kyst,
Til Legemet for Aanden,
  der voxte i vort Bryst.
 
Den stærke Aand i Druen
  og Rosens friske Duft,
Vil forme sig til Læber,
  frisk' som den rene Luft;
Hver Flamme-Aand, alt Aandigt
  i Fjeldets Marmorsteen,
Sig runder smukt til Skuldre,
  til Arme, Bryst og Been.
 
Hver Bølge-Aand, hver Guddom
  i Solens Straaleskjær,
Vil smelte venlig sammen
  og danne Øiet her;
Den luftige, lette Taage,
  der over Engen gaaer,
Sit Aandige vil skjænke
  til lange Bølge-Haar.
 
Men hvert et Suk herneden,
  af Længsel og af Lyst,
Med Tone-Verdnen, formes
  til Hjerte i vort Bryst.
— Hvem løste mig hiin Gaade,
  hvoraf mon sligt jeg veed?
Jeg lærte det af hende,
  min første Kjærlighed!
