You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

En slända

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Du vackra slända, som till mig flög in,
när tyngst min längtan öfver boken drömde,
du kom med hela sommarn till mitt sinn.
Du kom och jag allt gammalt svårmod glömde.
Blott dig jag såg, min dag jag lycklig dömde,
du vackra slända.

Men bäst jag jublade, att du var min
och lifvets skänk i sång på knä berömde,
du flög den samma väg som du kom in,
du trolska slända.

All afskedsgråt i välgångsord förrinn!
Ej beska fauns i bägarn, som vi tömde.
Att du var sol, jag skugga blott vi glömde.
Flyg ljus, flyg blå, än sommarlycka finn,
välsignade, som en gång varit min,
min vackra slända.
