Sonnet ved Fyrstinde Borgheses og hendes tre Børns Død

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



En Paradisets Blomst af Troen bragt
Til Temsens Bred og plantet der i Solen
Skjød herligt frem. Dens Duft, dens Yndes Magt
Dens Glands, sligt findes ei hos Vaarviolen.

Men Kjærligheden planted' Blomsten om
Den Blomst, som gjorte alle Hjerter glade,
Den plantedes ved Tiberen i Rom,
En himmelsk Duft gik fra dens rene Blade.

Og Duften steeg —; vi hørte Engle sige:
„Den Blomst er ei for noget jordisk Sted,
I Lysets Have blomstrer kun dens Lige!"

En Engel saae vi da til Jorden stige,
Og rive Blomsten op: tre Skud gik med,
Tre unge Skud — de groe nu i Guds Rige.
