by Hans Christian Andersen (1805 - 1875)

Martsviolerne
Language: Danish (Dansk) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Sig himlen hvælver så ren og klar,
isblomster fryser på rudens glar;
 
i solens flamme så smukt de stå;
en yngling sidder og ser derpå.
 
Men som han på de blomster ser,
to pigeøjne derude ler;
 
så skønne blomster han aldrig så;
to martsvioler så smukke blå.
 
Isblomsten smelter ved kindens brand.
- Vorherre hjælpe den unge mand!
