Adam Oehlenschläger. Den 26. Januar 1850


Farvel, Du største Skjald i Norden!
Ud til Dit Hjem nu Toget gaaer;
„En smuk Allee til Kirkegaarden"
Et Folk i Sorg langs Veien staaer.
Til Frederiksberg! der var din Vugge
Der Aandens Lampe straalte rigt
Der skal om Dig sig Graven lukke.
Din Vandring er et Skjønheds Digt,
Guds Lys i Dig blev Aandens Eie
Deel af os selv og altid vort.
Farvel! hvil sødt! redt er dit Leje!
— I Graad døer Vuggesangen bort.

Farvel! Farvel! — nu græder Norden,
Som Du forstod, som Du besang,
Saa Oldtid steeg igjen af Jorden,
Dens Hjerte slog, dens Skjolde klang,
— som Foraardsvinden over Voven
Saa frisk, saa sund blev Sangen bragt.
Din Sang var dansk som Bøgeskoven
Og nordisk som Nordlysets Pragt. -
Farvel, Du største Skjald i Norden!
Ud til Dit Hjem nu Toget gaaer;
„En smuk Allee til Kirkegaarden"
Et Folk i Sorg langs Veien staaer.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I would live in your love as the sea-grasses live in the sea,
Borne up by each wave as it passes, drawn down by each wave that recedes;
