Therese

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du milchjunger Knabe,
Wie schaust du mich an?
Was haben deine Augen
Für eine Frage getan!

Alle Ratsherrn in der Stadt
Und alle Weisen der Welt
Bleiben stumm auf die Frage,
Die deine Augen gestellt!

Eine Meermuschel liegt
Auf dem Schrank meiner Bas':
Da halte dein Ohr d'ran,
Dann hörst du etwas!

Therese

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

Jij grasgroene jongen,
Wat kijk je mij aan?
Wat zie ik in je ogen
Voor een vraag eig’nlijk staan?
 
Alle dekens in de stad
En alle wijzen der aard’
Blijven stom bij de vragen
Waarmee jouw oog naar mij staart!
 
Wel, een zeeschelp, die ligt
Op de kast van mijn nicht:
Houd daar maar je oor aan,
Dan hoor je ’n bericht!
