about

To a poem bu Lene Poulsen.

lyrics

Jeg kender en elg
med sang i sit svælg
og når den synger,
synger den af karsken bælg.

Jeg kender en birk
og den hedder Dirck
og når det blæser,
gi'r den efter med et knirk.

Og elgen er stor
og birken, den gror
langt ind i himlen,
der hvor fuglekongen bor.

Jeg ved ikke hvad
der gør mig så glad
mon det er elgen,
når den ta'r et birkeblad?

Den ta'r det med ro
jeg syn's at de to
sku' ta' og blive her,
for her skal jeg jo bo.
