Treasure Island

Hans Christian Andersen

(2 April 1805 – 4 August 1875 / Odense)

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 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
