Herligt, en Sommernat - Poem by Johan Ludvig Heiberg

Herligt, en Sommernat
Drage til Elverkrat,
Hvile ved Kilden den svale.
Luna sit Sølverbaand
Snoer om Endymion,
Spejder i Busk og i Dale.

Møder en Nymfe dig,
Lad hende skjøtte sig,
Jæger, o lad hende fare!
Husk, at Actæon fik
Straf for et dristigt Blik,
Jæger, o tag dig i Vare!

Gaa paa den sikre Vej,
Sværm og forvild dig ej,
Jæger, i Agt du dig tage!
Men har du tabt vort Spor,
Lyt til vort Jægerchor,
Det skal dig kalde tilbage.
