Den snevre Kreds

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Nu bliver Alt saa smaat derude,
den vide Kreds indsnevrer sig;
jeg kigger ind ad Hjærtets Rude -
nu bliver Alt saa stort hos mig.

Men der er ingen brede Gæster,
ej Skænk og Sølvtøj i hver Vraa;
der er en Mand, som holder Fester
blandt sine Minders kære Smaa.

De gode Børn - i Klynger træder
de Dansen om den gamle Ven;
og om de snubler, om de græder,
de rejser sig og ler igen.

Jeg kigger ind ad Hjærtets Rude,
det trange Rum udvider sig:
nu bliver Alting smaat derude,
nu der er stort og lyst hos mig.
