Törne, du min syskonplanta, 
Svept i vinterns is, försmås du, 
Höljd af taggar, hatas du. 
Men jag tänker: kommer våren, 
Slår du ut i blad och rosor, 
Och en växt fins ej på jorden, 
Ljuf och älskad såsom du. 
O, hur mången törnestängel 
Står ej naken i naturen, 
Som behöfde kärlek blott, 
Blott en solblick af ett hjerta, 
För att kläda sig i rosor 
Och hvart väsens glädje bli!
