Stjärnornas tröst

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Jag har frågat en  i natt
-- ett ljus långt bort där ingen bor --:
"Vem lyser du, främmande stjärna?
Du går så klar och stor."

Hon såg med en stjärneblick,
som gjorde min ömkan stum:
"Jag lyser en evig natt.
Jag lyser ett livlöst rum.

Mitt ljus är en blomma som vissnar
i rymdernas sena höst.
Det ljuset är all min tröst.
Det ljuset är nog till tröst.“
