by Hans Christian Andersen (1805 - 1875)

Hytten
Language: Danish (Dansk) 
Available translation(s): FRE GRE
Hvor Bølgen højt mod Kysten slaar
En ganske lille Hytte staar,
Men rundt om paa det hele Næs
Er ej en Plet med Græs.

Kun Himmel, Hav og nøgent Land
Omgiver Hyttens Drømmeland.
Et Paradis er dog det Sted,
Thi der bor Kjærlighed!

Ej Sølv, ej Guld man finder
Der, men To, som har hinanden kjær.
Se! Kys og Smil paa Læben ler,
Og Øjet Sjælen ser.

Det tale ej det mindste Ord;
Glemt er den hele store Jord,
Med Kamp og Smerte, Fryd og Fred,
Thi her bor Kjærlighed!
