by August Strindberg (1849 - 1912)

Semele, Semele
Language: Swedish (Svenska) 
Semele, Semele,
vem narrade dig, du kära,
att älskarens anlet se?
Ej kommer man makter nära,
om icke för att dem be.

Semele, Semele,
din älskare kom i glansen
bland väsande blixtar ställd,
din brudkrans blev offerkransen;
nu brinner du opp i hans eld.
