Vi er som to Strømme af modsat Løb,
Og dog blev vi lagt i det samme Svøb;
Jeg først født, Du siden, det fryder Dig lidt;
Om Alderens Forskjel Du taler saa tidt;
Hvad gjør den? Mit Hjerte groer dog ind i dit!
Din Aands Kraft jeg troer paa; den er ikke liden;
Vorherre den lade ret groe ind i Tiden!
Og naar Du saa naaer mig i Alder og Aar,
Staa Du da saa ung, som jeg nu for Dig staaer!
