Declamationen - Poem by Emil Aarestrup

Som Maanen lyste Lampen,
Hvor vi fortroligt sade,
Og Natvioler dufted
I Damernes Pomade.

Og Syltetøier funkled,
Og Viin, paa gyldne Fade;
I Dandsesalen hørtes
En kjælen Galopade.

Musiken i det Fjerne
Kun lidet os geneerte;
Vi bad, og, rød som Rosen,
Du Digtet declameerte.

Og hvert et Bryst stod stille -
I Salen standsed Valsen -
Ak, kun din lille Søster
Faldt, Engel, dig om Halsen!
