A DANISH POEM IN HONOUR OF THE PRINCESS OF WALES. The special correspondent of the Star thus trans- lates a pretty poetical effusion addressed to the Princess Alexandra, on her arrival in Denmark, by Hans Christian Andersen, a writer whose principal works are well known in England :â Amid a time of utter bitterness A ray of light over the darkness gleams; For thou, whom Denmark suckled at her breast, Sailest again into our native seasâ To look upon your mother while she mourns, And on her need! Welcome to Fatherland, Whose birch trees cast their shadows on the shore Changedâah, how changed!âis Denmark from the days When thou from us received thy bridal dower The fangs of a rapacious monster meet In Denmark's mighty heart! In deepest need All have forsaken us! All, all, have changed! Again thou lookest on thy Fatherland. Abused, down-trodden, almost crushed to death. Bat one, we know, is still unchanged and true, True now as when the sunshine lit the land- 'Tis thou And therefore here in love we wait To greet thee True as thou has Denmark been True as thy heart has been her love for thee, Her prayer that Joy and Peace be ever thine Therefore, thou hear'st the hearts of Denmark throb, While the glad birchen-shadow'd streams of home Open their watery arms to welcome thee."
