Karel van de Woestijne: Ween aan mijn borst (Gedicht)

 

Ween aan mijn borst

Ween aan mijn borst den schat der tranen
die rijk me maken van uw leed,
ik die van wankelende wanen
als gij het talmend smeken weet;

ik die, mijn kind, op andre schouder
om eendre vreze heb geschreid,
maar van elke onmacht oud en ouder,
weer om een nieuwe hope lijd;

ik die het goud van alle transen
voor de as van oude zonnen ken,
maar van elk glorend morgen-glanzen
de huiverende minnaar ben…

Ween uwe tranen, lange en lijze,
die van uw lijden rijk me maakt:
straks ziet ge in ‘t oog des levens-wijzen
hoe stééds de wanen-lampe waakt…

Het huis in de stad (1908-1909)

Karel van de Woestijne
(1878 – 1929)
Ween aan mijn borst

Portret van Karel van de Woestijne (1937) door Henri van Straten (1892 – 1944)
