Aftensang paa Taget - Poem by Bernhard Severin Ingemann

Over Hav og Bjerg og Flod
Kom jeg hid fra Norden;
Ei hvad Hjertet hist forlod
Finder det paa Jorden.

O, men her dog Øiet seer
Hvad ved Codans Strømme
Aldrig uden Veemod meer
Sjælen sig kan drømme.

Underfuldt er her at staae;
Saligt her at hvile:
I hver Luftning Engle smaa
Vifte og henile.

Stille Nat paa fremmed Tag!
Flammebjerg ved Voven!
Velske Nattegaleslag
Fra Lemoneskoven!

Nye Himmel! nye Jord!
Nye Tryllestemmer!
Fryd, jeg drømte om i Nord!
Nu jeg dig fornemmer!
