by Hans Christian Andersen (1805 - 1875)

Lærken synger sin Morgensang
Language: Danish (Dansk) 
Lærken synger sin Morgensang,
Bader i Dug sin Vinge,
Toner kvæge, er Barmen trang,
Hjertet de Taarer bringe! -- --

Lykkens Guldfugl den flyver med,
Hvor vi end vandre ville;
Ak, paa vor Grav er dog først det Sted,
Hvor den [sidder os]1 stille!
