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 April 20, we are $4,600 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 and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Til min Gyldenlak

Language: Norwegian (Bokmål)

Gyldenlak, før Du din Glands har tabt,
da er jeg Det hvoraf Alt er skabt;
ja før Du mister din Krones Guld,
da er jeg Muld.

Idet jeg raaber: med Vindvet op!
mit sidste Blik faar din Gyldentop.
Min Sjel dig kysser, idet forbi
den flyver fri.

Togange jeg kysser din søde Mund.
Dit er det første med Rettens Grund.
Det andet give du, Kjære husk,
min Rosenbusk!

Udsprungen faaer jeg den ei at see;
thi bring min Hilsen, naar det vil skee;
og siig, jeg ønsker, at paa min Grav
den blomstrer af.

Ja siig, jeg ønsker, at paa mit Bryst
den Rose laa, du fra mig har kyst;
og, Gyldenlak, vær i Dødens Huus
dens Brudeblus!
