Træd stille min Veninde, jeg ved dit...

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Træd stille min Veninde, jeg ved dit Hjerte græder,
naar tavse vi betræder Erindringens Bred.
Dog føres vi bestandig tilbage til de Steder
hvor Sorger og hvor Glæder i Stilhed sænkes ned.

På SøensVande hviler den Haand, som alting slukker,
og lydløst den sig lukker. Og slumrende deri
en mystisk Aabenbaring af Dunkelheden dukker,
som drømmeagtig smuk er, i fjern Melankoli!

I denne tyste Verden hvor al vor Fryd og Kummer
begraves og forstummer i tusindaarig Nat.
Har Seersjæle skuet og anet, hvad den rummer,
og løst den af dens Slummer og løftet Kunstens Skat.

Her færdes vore døde. Og tavse bud de Skikke,
men vi forstaar dem ikke, fra Skyggelandets Kyst.
Veninde, lad os dvæle ved Søens Bred og drikke
for nogle Øjeblikke dens vemodsfulde Trøst.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
