Man finder det passende, finder det smukt

Man finder det passende, finder det smukt,
Naar jeg synger om Svanernes Sang og Flugt,
Om det svulmende Hav, om Stjernernes Pragt,
Om Guds Natur i dens Fylde og Magt;
Men synger jeg ud mit Hjertes Sang,
Ved Synet af Spaniens deilige Qvinder,
Den svulmende Skjønhed, den svævende Gang,
De Øine, de Fødder, de flammende Blikke,
Saa sige de strax, det passer sig ikke,
Den nordiske Fromhed og Klædning vi savne.
Men jeg veed i Spanien ei Ord eller Navne
For Tanken, undtagen — „at kysse og favne!"
I Paradiishaven, som Spanien staaer nær,
Det Deiligste det var jo Eva der,
Og alt det Deiligste, skabt af Gud,
I Kjærlighed synger mit Hjerte ud!
