Den försmådda

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Ax vid ax på åkern vagga, 
Korn vid korn i axen gömmas; 
Så hvart flyktigt ord, du fällde, 
Växer i mitt trogna hjerta. 
Grymma, otacksamma gosse, 
Odlarn går att berga tegen, 
Men du sår blott, du, och skörden 
Lemnar du åt himlens foglar, 
Lemnar du åt snö och vindar.
