Tell me maiden -- maiden dear! Tell me what is love? In thy brown eyes shining clear: On thy lips, O maiden dear, Can I see it move? It is two hearts, two hearts true, Two hearts with one beat: Two souls shining, sighing through Lips and eyes of morning dew, With one wish between the two, And that wish to meet.
