Louis Couperus: Melodie

L o u i s  C o u p e r u s

(1863-1923)

M e l o d i e


Laat, o lieve, laat

Uw blanke vingren langs

De toetsen fladdren;

En licht.

 

Laat, o lieve, laat

De tonen kwelend vallen, als

Kristallen dauw,

Die van uw blanke vingren drupt,

En zoet

Vervloeit.

 

Luchtgewiekte melodie

Zweef klaatrend op!

Of juublend in een zilverlach,

Of smeltend…

Smeltende in een vliet

Van louter tranen…

 

Trillend klankgetover!

Reine parelzang… stijg,

Zwellend,

In uw vol geschal!

 

Laat, o lieve, laat

Uw blanke vingren langs

De toetsen fladdren;

Vlindervlug

En licht…
