Blaaveis! Blaaveis! se! Hvor de skinner!
mellem det guldbrune løv de finner
veinen og løfter paa hoderne smaa.
ah! hvor de lyser! ah! hvor de skinner!
hele skogen er staalende blaa,
og saa mange, og saa mange, og saa mange, mange vi finner.
Kom! vær med!
Og er du bange for bækken du gjære,
jeg skal dig bære
først over baækken og saa over gjære,
sætte dig ned
her paa vort gamle, deilige sted.
Sollen glittrer i skoggens toppe,
Himlen blaaner saa heit deroppe.
Blaaveis! Blaaveis! Solen glittrer 
og Himlen blaaner,
Nu es det vaar!
