Det er hvidt herude

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Det er hvidt herude:
Kyndelmisse slår sin knude
overmåde hvas og hård,
hvidt forneden, hvidt foroven,
pudret tykt står træ i skoven
som udi min abildgård.

Det er tyst herude:
Kun med sagte pik på pude
melder sig den små musvit,
Der er ingen fugl, der synger;
finken kun på kvisten gynger,
ser sig om og hvipper lidt.

Det er koldt herude:
Ravne skrige, ugler tude,
søge føde, søge læ.
Kragen spanker om med skaden
højt på rygningen af laden,
skeler til det tamme kræ.

Inderlig jeg længes
efter vår, men vintren strænges;
atter vinden om til nord!
Kom, sydvest, som frosten tvinger,
kom med dine tågevinger,
kom og løs den bundne jord!
