Jag sade ej ett ord till dig,
ett ord du nämnde ej till mig
om huru högt vår kärlek brann,
och dock förstodo vi varann.

Du sände mig en enda blick,
som genom all ådror gick.
Så rik, odödelig och varm
den nådde djupet i min barm.

Som eld den i mitt hjärta sjöd,
där skall den brinna till min död;
och som ett ädelt, eldigt vin –
ju mer den åldras blir den fin.
