Erotiske digte af Emil Aarestrup, ('Erotic poems by Emil Aarestrup')


Skovensomhed

Igennem bøgeskoven
jeg dig ved hånden førte;
der var så grønt og køligt,
vi nattergalen hørte.
Det var som hele verden
med blomster og med grene,
med skyer og med stjerner
tilhørte os alene.
Vi talte ikke sammen,
vi kunne intet sige,
som snoede, tause ranker,
ensomme, lykkelige.
Så frit, afsides var det,
så ubevogtet, stille,
det var, som om vi intet
mer ønskede og ville.
