Hvarför suckar bäckens bölja

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Hvarför suckar bäckens bölja, 
Klagar sakta under färden, 
Far i krokar öfver fältet,
Böjer bugter öfver ängen, 
Viker af från vägen ofta, 
Färdas blott ett stycke framåt, 
Slingrar nästa stund tillbaka? 

Så jag färdas sjelf mot fjerran, 
Går mot obekanta öden, 
Tar ett steg och ser tillbaka, 
Vandrar fram och vänder åter, 
Vill ännu se hemmets höjder, 
Röken från min faders boning.
