Vi er i Marts, men Martsviol

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

Vi er i Marts, men Martsviol
Kun sees i Rude-Isen,
Man selv maa bringe Foraars-Sol
Og „Fatter" bringe Visen!
Her er vi jo den gamle Stok,
(Det sagt er med Poliskhed)
 Og more os det skal vi nok,
Vi har jo Ungdoms Friskhed!
 
See Stuen her, hvor pompeiansk,
Nei, det er den ved Siden,
Herinde, her er østerlandsk,
Med Nyden hele Tiden.
Hver Væg et Billedgalleri,
Imens vi kildre Ganen,
 Paa kjøbenhavnsk kaldt Poesi,
Paa østerlandsk: Divanen!
 
Det er omtrent eengang hvert Aar,
Vi her slaae Basserallen,
I Danmarks ny Historie staaer
Det ei — spørg kun von Allen!
Men det er ligemeget det,
Vi ærgre os slet ikke.
Vi svinge Hue og Kasket,
Vor egen Skaal vi drikke!
 
Har Tiden ingen Martsviol,
Saa har den her „Slukefter"!
Din Skaal, min Skaal, vort Selskabs Skaal,
Hurra, af alle Kræfter!
Her er gemytligt friskt og sundt,
Og ingen Rigsdags Tanker,
 Drik ud dit Glas, det er Dig undt,
„Hvil Hoved paa et Anker!
