Hvilken sällhet skön att synas

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Hvilken fröjd att vara vacker,
Hvilken sällhet skön att synas!
Vore jag så mörk som mången,
Ful som flere andra flickor,
Fick jag ej i källor skåda,
Ej i bäckar se mitt anlet;
Källans skönhet kunde störas,
Bäckens silfver sotbesmittas.
Tordes knappt på ängen träda,
Att ej blomstren skulle skrämmas,
Blomma hviska tyst till blomma:
Är det nässlan, är det tisteln,
Kanske kardborrn sjelf, som kommer?
