by Pieter Corneliszoon Hooft (1581 - 1647)

Zwaantje, die haar hartenwee
Language: Dutch (Nederlands) 
Zwaantje, die haar hartenwee
aan haar lief niet dorst verklaren,
zat en klaagde 't aan de baren
op de oever van de zee:
‘Straf is hij, en bitser mee,
dan de noordewind te vijnen,
koeler dan de watervliet,
spitser dan het droge riet,
schoner dan de zonneschijnen.’
