First Line: Let us dance!
Last Line: Let us dance!


Let us dance!

Surpassingly I loved her eyes,
Clearer than the starry skies;
I loved their swift surprise.

Let us dance!

She had such wild ways, truly
A sweetheart most unruly;
And she took life so coolly.

Let us dance!

But beyond these memories start
The kisses her flower-lips dart. ...
Since she is dead to my heart.

Let us dance!

I recall, still I recall
Pensive hours at evenfall:
And they are best of all.

Let us dance!
