Do Thou Love, Too!

By Johanna Ambrosius (1854–1939)

THE WAVES they whisper

In Luna’s glance,

Entrancing music

For the nixies’ dance.

They beckon, smiling,

And wavewise woo,

While softly plashing:—

“Do thou love, too!”

In blossoming lindens

Doves fondly rear

Their tender fledglings

From year to year.

With never a pausing,

They bill and coo,

And twitter gently:—

“Do thou love, too!”
