Aarstiderne


Du aldrig vil elske? Til Stella jeg taled,
en Morgen i Vaar, da jeg hos hende sad,
mens Solen steeg over Hækken og maled
med Purpur i Duggen hvert skielvende Blad.
Nei, svared hun, aldrig! Thi Elskov er Tant.
Som Duggen, som Morgenens Purpur den svinder;
og naar den er svundet den sörgligt minder
kun om at den svandt!

Du aldrig vil elske? Til Stella jeg taled,
en Middag i Sommer, da trætte vi sad,
i kiölige Grotte, mens Ildkuglen praled
paa Himlen og brændte hvert visnende Blad.
Du aldrig vil elske? Skal Kierlighed da
liig Solen fortære et Hierte som brænder?
Hun rödmed og stammed og vred sine Hænder
og sukkede: Ja!

Du aldrig vil elske? Til Stella jeg taled,
en Aften ved Hytten, i guldfagre Höst,
mens Solen saa röd under Bölgerne daled
og smilte til Stellas ömtbölgende Bryst.
Fortryller Naturens Velgierning dig ei?
Og dog du dens herligste Frugter forskyder.
O fryd dig ved det, som utallige fryder!
Hun sukkede: Nei!

Du aldrig vil elske? Til Stella jeg taled,
en Midnat i Vinter, mens ene vi sad
saa taus ved Kaminen, da Maanen opmaled
i Vinduet Rimens udfoldede Blad.
Du nægter mig altsaa den hellige Lyst
at henvandre Livet med dig ved min Side,
til Alderens Snee farver Lokkerne hvide?
Hun sank til mit Bryst.
