Prolog og Epilog

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



En Aftenunderholdning med Bevilling,
(Naturligviis maa der Bevilling til;)
En Aftenunderholdning faaer De, en Udstilling, -
Udstilling, ja, det Navn her passe vil,
Thi det er en Udstilling af Elever,
Saaledes som Theatret disse har;
Men da vor Virkekreds er der saa snever,
At Publicum os neppe bliver vaer,
Saa ville vi os dristigt dette nærme,
Og for i Aften glemme alle Baand; -
Det er de unge Bier her, som sværme,
De gaae iaften lidt paa egen Haand,
Og Publicum vil see hvad her sig rører,
Og muligt gjette Skjæbnen, som vi faae,
Om Hoben eller Kunsten vi tilhører,
Paa hvilken Plads vi skal i Templet staae;
Elevens Fremtid ligger mellem Gaader,
Og Menneskene spaae, men Een kun raader;
Til Kunstens Maal er Veien heel besværlig;
Ei ganske ved sig selv man kommmer frem,
Tidt ender man hos Titchen eller Werlich,
Hjelp maa der til, en Bølge maa os bære,
Thi det er ikke nok, Flid og Talent,
Og denne Bølges Navn er godt bekjendt,
Den kaldes Publicum, — den for os være!
