Als mein Auge sie fand
Und mein Herz sie erkannt,
O, wie glühte die Brust
Von Entzücken, von Lust!

Wie voll Düfte die Au',
Und der Himmel, wie blau!
Und der Wald voll Gesang,
Und die Lüfte voll Klang!

Ohne Sie, wie so kalt,
Und die Welt, wie so alt,
Und die Erde, wie leer,
Und das Herz, ach! - so schwer.

Poem of the day


Dugdraaben blinker paa Rosengreen;

Sjæle er Draaber paa Livets Green;
De tindre, de zittre af Glæde:
I Sjælens Dugperle, klar og reen,
Er Verdensaanden tilstede.
