Mдrk hur vеr skugga, mдrk, Movitz mon frere,
Inom ett mцrker sig slutar,
Hur guld och purpur I skoveln, dдr,
Byts till guld och klutar.
Vinkar Charon frеn sin brusande дlv,
Och tre gеnger sen dцdgrдvaren sjдlv,
Mer du din druvan din ryster.
Dдrfцr, Movitz, kom hjдlp mig och vдlv
Gravvеrd цver vеr syster!

Lillklockan klдmtar till storklockans dцn,
Lцvad stеr kantorn I porten
Och till de skrеlande gossarnas bцn
Helgas denna orten.
Vдgen opp till templets griftprydda stad
Kantas mellan rosors gulnade blad,
Multnande plankor och bеrar;
Till dess den lеnga och svartklдdda rad
Mjukt sig bugar I tеrar.

Sе gick till vila, frеn slagsmеl och bal,
Grдlmakar Lцfberg, din maka,
Ej mer frеn grдset lеnghalsig och smal
Hon дn glor tillbaka.
Hon frеn Dantobommen skildes I dag
Och med henne alla lustiga lag.
Vem skall nu flaskan befalla?
Torstig var hon och urtorstig дr jag;
Vi дr torstiga alla.

(Ack lдngtansvдrda, och bortskymda skjul
Under de susande grenar,
Dдr tid och dцden en skцnhet och ful
Till ett stoft fцrenar!
Till dig aldrig avund sцkt nеgon stig;
Lyckan, eljest uti flykten sе vig,
Aldrig kring grifterna ilar.
Ovдn dдr vдpnad, vad synes vдl dig,
Bryter fromt sina pilar.)
