En mås i skyn, 
en tärna öfver skäret - en sommarsyn! 
En sommarton, som klingar 
i tärnans lock, i måsens skri. 
En sommarsky, som flingar 
solhvit snö kring haf.

I blod från röda tången, 
i eld från rostgul laf om klippans 
ringar stiger sommarsången. 
Hör tärnans lock, hör måsens skri! 
Hör spofvens skrämda rop, 
som bär ett gällt: 
förbi, förbi - till allt, 
som klingar, svingar öfver skäret.
