Advarsel

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Det Skum, som krandser Vandet,
Det Lys, som farver Jorden,
Skymasserne, som længe
Har samlet sig til Torden;
 
Den store, fyldte Regnbu',
Og du og jeg, Veninde,
Hvorlænge, troer du, inden
Vi skilles ad og svinde?
 
Nyt Bølgeskum vil komme,
Nyt Skyggespil, tilsyne,
Og andre Skyer trække
Paa Himlen op og lyne.
 
Forgaae, fordunste skal vi,
Som Draaberne, der strømme,
Og som en Regnbu' slukkes
Alt, hvad vi see og drømme.
 
Forstyr os derfor ikke
Den skjønne, korte Vandring -
Den truer alt, den kommer,
Den dræbende Forandring!
