Ein Gedanke

Language: German (Deutsch)

Sie schlingt um meinen Nacken
Den Arm so weich und weiss;
Ich presse sie an den Busen,
Da wird mir glühend heiss.

Da löst Gefühl und Denken
In einem Gedanken sich :
Ihr Herz schlägt an dem meinem,
Ihr Herz, es schlägt für mich.

Een gedachte

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Zij slaat zacht om mijn hals heen
Haar arm, zo blank compleet;
Ik druk haar aan mijn boezem,
Ik krijg het gloeiend heet.
Dan smelt gevoel en denken
Tot één gedachte, blij:
Haar hart klopt aan het mijne,
Haar hart, het klopt voor mij.
