Afsked - Poem by Sophus Niels Christen Claussen

Efter en Drøm uden Lige
skilles vi høflige, spydige
som to demaskerede Fægtere,
der erklærer hinanden for dydige.

Vi skilles som to Duellanter,
der hilser med sænkede Vaaben.
De krysted hinanden en Smule for tæt
Ansigt til Ansigt, Visiren aaben.

Som Amazonen hilser sin Helt,
som Helten sin Amazone,
to stumme Fjender, der skued for dybt,
men genfandt en skæmtende Tone -

Vi hilser med sænkede Klinger
muntert, men ikke smittende.
én var det nye Aarhundrede,
den anden forblev i det nittende,
