by Hans Christian Andersen (1805 - 1875)

Min lille Fugl, hvor flyver Du
Language: Danish (Dansk) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Min lille Fugl, hvor flyver Du,
Imellem grønne Grene?
Ak, mon jeg rinder dig i Hu?
Mit Hjerte briste vil itu! --
-- O Gud, hvor jeg dog er ene!

Du sagde, at Du var mig god;
Ja, godt mig Alle mene,
Men hvis Du ret min Sorg forstod,
Du kom, Du sang mig Sjæle-Mod;
Da sad jeg ikke alene.

Min lille Fugl, Du kommer ej
Fra dine grønne Grene;
Jeg stille vandre maa min Vej; --
Ak, ingen elsker Dig som jeg!
-- O Gud, hvor jeg [dog er]1 ene!
