Nej, hvad var det jeg fik

Language: Norwegian (Bokmål)

Nej, hvad var det jeg fik 
for et spørsmål, da han gik: 
"Jeg en væv lager til, 
den skal op som i April; 
hvis du tror, du har råd, — 
giv mig tråd!“ 

Nej, hvad mener han vel? 
Vil han væve på den selv? 
Og mit dejlige spinn, 
se, det mener han skal in? 
Og så fort som det går, — 
alt i vår? 

Og han lo, da han fløj; 
nej, han er så full av skøj. 
Tør jeg lægge mit spinn 
i så ungt og flygtigt sinn? — 
Give Gud, at det bant 
hvad jeg spant!
