Afsted min Baad! - Poem by Jens Peter Jacobsen

Afsted min Baad, afsted min Baad
Ad Lidenskabens Strømme!
Dig styrer ingen Viljes Ror,
Hvorhen de vil, du svømme!

Af sted min Baad, af sted min Baad!
Længst Haabets Flag vi strøge,
Der findes ingen Havn for dig,
Hvor du kan Hvile søge.

Af sted min Baad, af sted min Baad!
Dig lyser ingen Stjerne,
Snart knuses du i Fossens Fald,
Det bruser i det Fjerne.
