Venskabs-Pagten - Poem by Hans Christian Andersen


Nu flyve vi bort fra den danske Strand,
Heelt ud om fremmede Lande,
Og saa er' vi nede i Grækenland
Ved de deilige kornblaae Vande.

Citrontræet staaer med sin guulgule Frugt,
Den tynger mod Jorden Grenen;
Der Tidslen groer, der Billeder smukt
Er hugget i Marmorstenen,

Hvor Hyrden sidder; hans Hund har sig lagt
Tæt ved ham, dens Plads vi tage
Og høre fortælle om Venskabs Pagt,
En smuk Skik fra gamle Dage.
