Du sidder i Baaden, som svømmer

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Du sidder i Baaden, som svømmer,
Sænket i Bølgens Musik;
Dine dejlige Øjne drømmer,
Mod Skyerne vendt dit Blik.
Mod Aftenens taarnede Skyer
Stiger dit Hjertes Begær;
De vinker saa lokkende nær,
De daler, de letter, de flyer.

Men disse taarnede Skyer,
Som gløder i Purpurskær,
Som vinker og vinkende flyer
Og synes dog stedse nær,
De staar som et Billed paa Sorgen,
Et Spejl paa forgængelig Lyst;
De fylder med Solskin dit Bryst --
Og bliver til Regnvejr i Morgen.
