I liden høit deroppe

Language: Danish (Dansk)

I liden høit deroppe
Der ligger en Snarøj'd og sigter,
Ligger en Klarøj'd og digter;
Højt over Vrimlen og Stimlen
Ser han Himlen blå,
O så blå, evig, herlig blå!
Imellem Granernes Toppe.

Ved Elven dybt dernede,
Som suser blandt Bjerke sit Kvæde,
Står Digterens Glæde, hans Rede.
Just midt i Vrimlen og Stimlen
Ser han Himlen blå,
O så blå, evig, herlig blå!
I kjære Øjne dernede.

Men rør ej, rør ej Redet!
Der ligger en Snarøj'd og sigter,
Ligger en Klarøj'd og digter;
Højt over Vrimlen og Stimlen
Skal fra Himlen blå,
O så blå, evig, herlig blå!
Nok Skytten Redet få fredet.
