You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Jeg bringer Dig Smykker, som Guldsmedens Haand
Har samlet fra Tid til Tid
Og kædet og knyttet tilsammen i Baand
Af yderste Evne og Flid;
 
Jeg bringer Dig Perler, det dyreste Sæt,
Som nogen kan ønske sig: --
De Taarer tilbage, som Du har grædt
I Stilhed ved Tanken paa mig.

Nu fælder sit Løv den Ahorn 
  hvorundervi samm in stod.
Hun var mig podst over Alle 
  jeg var hon dealdriggod.

Hun rukte mig hon sit Hjerte
  med fagre smaa Fingre ti;
End dog jeg gav hinde Haanden 
  mit Hjerte var ikke deri.

Nu ligger dan Jom frus Lykke pas 
  Jord itu og forødt;
det blev hendes varste vaande, 
  at jeg var i verdenføat.

Stille, du elskede Kvinde!
Tyst maa vi træde, vi to.
Der sover en Sang her inde
I Skovens natlige Ro.
 
Stille er Vover og Vinde,
Tavs er hver Sangfuglemund,
Tiende Kilderne rinde
Blankt over mossede Bund.
 
Maanestraalerne spille
Tyst mellem Bøgene frem,
Langs ad Stierne stille
Blunder en lyslig Bræm.
 
Sølvskyen selv der oppe
Hviler paa Vingen bred,
Højt over Træernes Toppe
Skuer den lyttende ned.
 
Stille er Vover og Vinde,
Tyst maa vi træde, vi to.
Der sover en Sang her inde
I Skovens natlige Ro.
