Åter i Sorrento

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Sorrento, än i grönt och ljus
Du ler med dina hvita hus,
Som solen kysser varm.
Oranger under fönsterkarm!

An lunden full af blomstersnö
Sig skådar i violblå sjö
Och skuggar nymfens bad.
Sefirers spel med våg och blad!

Än drömma toner utan tal
I vind, i strå, bland berg och dal,
Ett ord kan väcka dem.
    Sorrento bo,
Sorrento, hjertats sommarhem!
