Saa sød var Sommernattens Blund

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Saa sød var Sommernattens Blund
Saa lys er Morgnens første Stund
Med Guld over Skovenes Side
Saa frejdig danser det friske Sund
Og mellem Lysstriber hvide
Skibene lydløst glide.
 
Jeg drømte om Dig, jeg tænker paa Dig,
Og atter og atter gentager jeg,
Dit Navn paa de blæsende Strande.
Og Skibene synes at hilse mig
Med Flag over Sejlenes Rande,
Paa Togt mod de fremmede Lande.
 
Mit Liv er ligt en saadan Fart,
Snart stille i Havn, paa Rejse snart,
Med Skum for den pløjende Planke.
Kaptajnen paa Dækket, og alting klart,
Og ikke en hæmmende Tanke
Om, havd der kan ske paa en Banke.
