Blarenlied


Wij, dorre en dode blaren,
Wij komen stil gevloôn
En vlechten door uw haren
Een goud- en bronzen kroon.

Daar, waar wij ritselend vielen,
En strooiden herfst-gewaad,
Daar sterft iets in uw zielen...
Gij, die er over gaat.

Wij leggen in uw ogen
Traan van weemoedigheid;
'De Zomer was een logen';
Zo zucht ge, wijl ge schreit.

Neen, stervling, in uw klagen
Treurt ge om ons dor geblaart;
Ge denkt aan zonnedagen,
Die gij vergeten waart.

Gij weent omdat wij zingen
Op droeve mijmertoon,
Van half-vergane dingen,
Te vroeg gestorven schoon.

Wij suizen 't in de hagen,
Wij fluistren 't vóór uw voet.
Wij komen ritselend klagen,
Dat àlles sterven moet.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
