(1866-1930)

Aften


Stille, Hjærte, Sol gaar ned,
Sol gaar ned paa Heden,
Dyr gaar hjem fra Dagens Béd,
Storken staar i Reden.
Stille, Hjærte, Sol gaar ned.

Tavshed over Hedesti
og langs Veje krumme.
En forsinket Humlebi
ene høres brumme.
Stille, Hjærte, Sol gaar ned.

Viben slaar et enligt Slag,
over Mosedammen,
før den under Frytlens Tag
folder Vingen sammen.
Stille, Hjærte, Sol gaar ned.

Fjerne Ruder østerpaa
blusser op i Gløden,
Hededamme bittesmaa
spejler Aftenrøden.
Stille, Hjærte, Sol gaar ned!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
