Barcarole - Poem by Johan Ludvig Heiberg

Lette Bølge! Naar du blaaner,
Gjennemsigtig, lys og klar,
Himlens Farveskjær du laaner,
Selv du ingen Farve har.
Himlen ei, kun Himlens Billed
Hviler i din dybe Favn;
Aldrig er din Længsel stillet,
Den er evig, som dit Savn.

Bølge! Hvor du klarest rinder,
Speiles Himlen i dit Bad;
Ak! din Længsel Hjertet minder
Om hvad Skjæbnen skiller ad.
Hjerte! Du bør ikke klage!
Selv Naturen føler Savn;
Trøst dig, hvis du har tilbage
Kun et Billed og et Navn.
