Lille Viggo


Lille Viggo, vil Du ride Ranke?
Sæt Dig paa mit Knæ, Du søde Dreng!
Jeg hos Dig er Barn i Sjæl og Tanke;
Vi vil lege, til Du skal i Seng.

Her hos Dig jeg Barnehimlen finder,
Glemmer Alt, hvad der gjør Hjertet Vee;
Lad mig kysse dine røde Kinder,
Lad mig dog de brune Øie see!

Viis mig saa, hvor stor Du er, Du Søde!
Nei, hvor Haanden dog er buttet rund!
Smilet sidder i de Kinder røde,
Altfor smuk er dog din lille Mund!

Hver en Blomst Du kysser, som en Broder,
Taler med den, paa din egen Viis,
Hele Verden har Du i din Moder,
Hendes Skjød er Dig dit Paradiis.

Ingen seer paa Dig med mørke Blikke,
Du er Barn, Dig er man ikke vred;
Verdens vilde Strid forstaaer Du ikke,
Kjærlighed kun kjender Kjærlighed.

Jeg en smuk Historie Dig lover,
Følg nu Moder til din lille Seng!
Synge vil jeg for Dig, til Du sover,
Lille Viggo, Moders bedste Dreng!

Du maaske for mig, som ældre, synger,
Naar jeg skal til Ro den sidste Gang;
Ja, naar Jorden paa min Kiste tynger,
Syng da med den dybe Vuggesang!

Tænk paa ham, der trofast mange Gange
Gynged' Dig paa Armen op og ned.
Verden glemmer mig og mine Sange!
Mon Du glemme vil min Kjærlighed?

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
