Den raske Ungdom

Language: Danish

Den raske Ungdom tog et Spring
og satte over Vandet,
brød sig en Blomst, snart her, snart hist,
forlod den med et Suk tilsidst
og drog sin Vej af Landet.

Det led paa Tiden, og der drog
en Vandrer ind i Landet;
og dér, hvor Strømmen flød i Ro
mod Solens Guldglød, hviled To
hver paa sin Bred af Vandet.

Hun hviled her, han hviled hist,
imellem dem laa Vandet;
og hun var bleg, og han var graa,
og begge stirrende de saa'
hvor Aftnen faldt paa Landet.

Da voved han sit Ungdoms Spring
fra før han drog af Landet;
og op han drev paa Sandets Grund,
dér kyssed hun den blege Mund
mens Natten faldt paa Vandet.
