Viggo Stuckenberg


Aften i Luxembourg-haven


Hen under Himlen aftengraa Skyer
i jagende Uro drager,
Lyset er koldt og Jorden vaad
og alle Smaafugle klager.

Det drypper fra Luxembourg-Havens Træer,
og Løvet bruser som Silke,
et Bed Tulipaner i Laser staar
og visner paa tynde Stilke.

Jeg gaar derinde og fryser selv
fremmed, hjemløs, alene,
finder tilfældigt en Buste gemt
bag regntunge Elmegrene.

Et furet Hoved, to Øjne som
Fortvivlelsens aabne Helved,
Haaret en knugende Uvejrssky,
og Brynene sorgfuldt hvælvet,

men Munden — Munden saa ung og blød
som dugget af Rosers Aande,
— et Hoved løftet af Blodets Brus
og bøjet i bitter Vaande.

Chopin — Der bliver saa ensomt tyst
i samme Stund under Løvet,
som tav hver Graaspurv i Busk og Græs
og lukked sit Næb bedrøvet.

Og al min Længsel mig fylder vildt,
saa underlig angst og bange,
som kunde min sidste Glæde dø,
før helt jeg turde den fange.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
